About 1,600 policemen have been deployed to the different cemeteries in Caraga Region to ensure public safety during the observance of the All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day celebration.

Chief Supt. Gilberto DC Cruz, Caraga police director, said the massive deployment of police personnel and force multipliers in cemeteries in Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur and Dinagat Islands would help ensure that the Nov. 1 and Nov. 2 events would be peaceful.

“Police operations will be intensified before, during and after the All Saints’ and All Souls’ days to deter the lawless elements who may take advantage of the situation and carry out their nefarious plans,” Cruz said.

Cruz said the Caraga Police Regional Office (PRO 13) in coordination with local government units and volunteer groups have organized and activated Oplan “Kaluluwa” to secure different areas of interest such as cemeteries, bus terminals, airports and seaports, churches and places of worship, tourist destinations, vital installations, and places of convergence.

He urged public to be alert and vigilant and report any suspicious persons and activities to the established police assistance desks and the nearest police stations.

Cruz also reminded those going to the cemeteries during the “Undas” break not to bring any deadly weapon. Bringing intoxicating liquor and playing loud music inside the cemeteries are prohibited. By CLC
