Public reminded vs. banned items during ‘Undas’-A A +A
Saturday, October 27, 2012
THE Davao City's Public Safety and Command Center (PSCC) has warned all Dabawenyos who will be celebrating the All Souls and All Saints days (Undas) next week to avoid bringing prohibited items to avoid hassle.
Major Magno Adalin, PSCC chief, in Thursday's I-Speak forum at the City Hall told reporters that among the items that all Dabawenyos must avoid when visiting their departed loved ones in various cemeteries are all kinds of bladed and deadly weapons, liquor, prohibited drugs, loud sound system, and other forms of items that might cause public nuisance.
"Wala iwas aberya, dili nalang ni nila pang-dalon ang mga butang na dili man gihapon pwedi isulod sa mga sementeryo (In order for them to avoid possible inconvenience, they should avoid bringing these items when visiting their departed loved ones)," Adalin said.
Adalin said the police have been reminded to strictly implement the prohibition of banned items inside all cemeteries across the city.
The PSCC will also closely monitor residential areas to deter criminals from victimizing houses while most of the people are at cemeteries.
For this year, Adalin said the city will be deploying around 80 anti-crime unit personnel under the PSCC to various residential areas across Davao City.
"We can expect na ang mga tao nga mo adto sa mga sementeryo or sa mga malls so yun yung (that almost all people will be flocking to different cemeteries and malls so) their effort during this time will be directed (on residential areas)," Adalin said.
