CAMP CARLOS DELGADO, CATARMAN, Northern Samar-The observance of the All Saints’ and Souls’ Day on November 1 and 2, 2018 was held peacefully in the entire province of Northern Samar.
To ensure public’s safety during Undas 2018, the Northern Samar Police Provincial Office deployed a total of 538 personnel and established 57 police assistance desks to the different cemeteries of 24 municipalities in Northern Samar.
PS/Supt. Romeo P. Campomanes from Police Regional Office 8, the over-all supervisor of Northern Samar during undas, personally looked over the deployment of personnel to make sure that the public were given due assistance and security.
As a result, no untoward incidents were reported during the entire celebration.
