No curfew order for minors in Cagayan de Oro

CAGAYAN de Oro City Mayor Rolando "Klarex" Uy clarified on Wednesday, July 27, that he has not issued an executive order that imposes curfew for minors.

"Walay koy executive order nga akong ibalik ang curfew sa mga minor," Uy said during an interview over Magnum Radio.

"Kung minor ang akong tagaan og adunay curfew, nagpasabot nga adunay discrimination," he added.

The Cagayan de Oro City Police Office (Cocpo) recommended the curfew for 18 year olds and below following the recent incidents in the city that involved minors.

According to the city mayor, he told Cocpo that he would have to consult with the other sectors, such as the youth and business sectors.

Councilor Romeo Calizo, the chairman of the city council's Public Order and Safety committee, for his part, said that curfew should not be limited to minors. He added that there were also adults involved in the recent incidents in Cagayan de Oro.

Based on Cocpo's 28-week monitoring, the average index crime incidence in Cagayan de Oro is 10 per week.

Accordng to Cocpo Deputy Director for Operations Lieutenant Colonel Surki Sereñas, the crime incidence threshold for big cities like Cagayan de Oro is two per day or 14 per week.

Sereñas said that the crime incidence on the 28th week reduced to only eight. (SunStar Philippines)
