ORMOC CITY– About 60 police personnel from this city were deployed at the Ormoc City astrodome which serves as the venue where candidates running in this year’s barangay polls are to submit their certificates of candidacy.

City Police Director Police Col. Nelvin Ricohermoso in an interview said that aside from police, also providing security in the area were members of the Coast Guard and Philippine Army.

He also said that as of the moment, they have yet to determine or declare a particular barangay as a hot spot relative to the October 30 barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections.(ROBERT DEJON)
