The Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office is ready to provide security to the public during the All Saints Day and All Souls Day commemoration on Nov. 1 and 2, NOPPO director, Senior Supt. Edward Carranza, said.
Police chiefs have been asked to put up assistance desks at the cemeteries in their areas of assignment, while traffic management groups have been requested to provide augmentation to maintain a smooth flow of traffic.
Police visibility, to include foot and mobile patrols, will be enhanced while the Quick Response Teams area will be on hand for quick deployment in time of trouble.
Carranza said people are expected to flock to the provinces by the middle of this week for the twin observance because of the long weekend ahead.
Sea ports, the airport and bus terminals are being closely secured in anticipation of the arrival of hordes of passengers coming to the province to pay respect to their departed dead relatives, or for a brief vacation.
Meanwhile, the Land Transportation Office will also mobilize teams for the implementation of “Oplan Ligtas Byahe: Undas 2012” in Negros Oriental, LTO-Bais City District Office chief, Janine Lawas, said.
She said the campaign will be from October 31 until November 4.
Public assistance desks will be erected in strategic areas, like bus terminals and sea ports, and mobile teams will be deployed to conduct checkpoints and enforce traffic laws, she added.
The LTO teams will also apprehend buses and other passenger vehicles found to be overloading to prevent accidents.
The Department of Transportation and Communication had earlier launched Oplan Ligats Byahe: Undas 2012.*JFP
