Negros police braces
for opening of classes


Two weeks before the opening of classes on June 4, the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office is now readying its Oplan Balik-Eskwela campaign, aimed at protecting students from street crimes and organized crime groups.

Senior Supt. Allan Guisihan, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, said their campaign will go after pickpockets, snatchers, drug traffickers, among other street crimes.

Guisihan said police visibility operations in the vicinity of schools will also be conducted.

Local police chiefs were also instructed to coordinate with officials and administrators of the different schools to ensure the safety and security of students. They are also enjoined to put up Police Assistance Desks.

Similar security measures will be implemented at bus terminals and seaports, in anticipation of a big volume of incoming passengers from the towns and cities, to Bacolod City.

Tens of thousands of students in Negros Occidental are expected to return to school on June 4.*GPB
