Police intensify campaign vs ‘akyat-bahay’ suspects-A A +A
Thursday, October 18, 2012
BACOLOD City Police Office (BCPO) Director Ricardo De la Paz on Wednesday directed all station commanders to intensify their campaign against “akyat bahay” suspects within their areas of responsibility.
De la Paz said station commanders should focus not only in the MassKara Festival sites but also in the subdivisions in different areas of Bacolod to pre-empt the possible operation of “akyat-bahay” suspects.
He said the station commanders should enhance their visibility patrol and pro-active measures within their areas of responsibility, especially during the highlights of the said festival.
De la Paz pointed out that recently some residents in the city, especially in the subdivisions, were victimized by the said suspects.
“This time, the city police will provide the necessary security coverage not only in the MassKara activity areas but even in residential and subdivisions,” he said. (Merlinda A. Pedrosa)
