Security up at sea ports,
 terminals after holidays

Security is up in different sea ports and bus terminals in Bacolod City in preparation for the arrival of those returning from vacation today.

PCG-Bacolod chief, Lt. Cmdr. Domenador Senador said the situation at the BREDCO port yesterday is still manageable but they expect an influx of travelers today since the Banago wharf has been temporarily shut for renovation.

Senador said PCG personnel are checking strictly the luggage of travelers and, so far, no contrabands have been seized. He said they are also ensuring that the sea vessels are not overloaded before they are allowed to sail.

Frank Carbon of WEESAM fast craft said their company and other sea vessel operators will  not have  additional trips because the existing ones are sufficient to accommodate the passengers.

 Bacolod City Police Director Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz said policemen will be deployed in bus terminals to ensure the safety of passengers.

De la Pa said police assistance centers were put up at the BREDCO port and at the bus terminals and in different malls in the city.

The Bacolod police is also coordinating with the highway patrol group to ensure the safety of motorists traveling back from  vacation.*APN
