Tabanda asked for a report about the incident saying despite a contract with a security agency, "the incident proved (that) there may be lapses in the conduct of security routines being implemented by the concerned offices."

She said an in-depth report would help provide information, which may guide the city in its actions to prevent the same incident from happening again.

Tabanda added that the security routines observed by some offices could likewise be reviewed.

The report will also guide the concerned offices on other protective measures to be adopted to ensure the properties of the City Government and the lives of its employees are fully secured, Tabanda said.

Interlink has recently installed infrared security cameras. The agency likewise deployed bomb-sniffing dogs in City Hall during the day.

Also in an earlier interview, City Administrator Peter Fianza said parking of vehicles was confined to only one area of City Hall to avoid the guards from doing another thing.

Only government vehicles should be parked at the City Hall grounds at night, Fianza stressed.
