TACLOBAN CITY– About 296 policemen have been deployed across the region in observance of the Holy Week and for the coming summer season.

No less than the police regional director, B/Gen. Reynaldo Pawid, led in the deployment of these police officers on Thursday (March 22) to their respective assignments.

According to Pawid, these cops would be deployed to different churches all over the region for the Lenten season and for the coming summer, to different tourist spots, terminal hubs, and other places of convergence.

These police officers are to enhance local forces’ presence and visibility in patrol operations, which are crucial in the maintenance of peace and order in communities, the police regional director emphasized.

Likewise, he reminded the troops to be self-aware while performing their duties in public and to exercise personal safety.

“I hope that you have inculcated in your mind all the standard operating procedures and guidance to be able to perform your duty. Just do your job and do it properly,” he said during the simple deployment ceremony also attended by his deputy for operations, Col. Salvador Alacyang, Fr. Michael Kirby Lauron, and Pastor Douglas Macalalag.
