PRO 7 on alert for 2017’s safe, secure closure

THE police in Central Visayas are tightening the security in public places and commercial establishments including banks in the last three days of 2017.

Chief Supt. Jose Mario Espino, the Police Regional Office (PRO) 7 director, said they are on the lookout for criminals who might prey on unsuspecting persons.

Lower units were also ordered to monitor automated teller machines (ATM).

Espino also warned his personnel not to illegally discharge their guns in celebrating the New Year, saying they might face dismissal from service if they do so.

Last Monday, Espino had a retired police officer Baltazar Paunil arrested after the latter illegally discharged his firearm in PC Hills in Cebu City.

PRO 7, following the order of Police Director General Ronald dela Rosa, will not tape the muzzles of their service firearms.

Espino said the police officers are mature enough to know what is right or wrong.

Last year, dela Rosa ordered no taping of their service firearm, which symbolizes the police’s campaign against indiscriminate firing. (KAL)
