The Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) has already been placed on a “full alert” status ahead of Holy Week.

BCPO spokesperson, Lt. Colonel Ronnie Brillo said police personnel are required to report to their respective posts during the period.

He added that they are not allowed to go on leave during Holy Week.

BCPO personnel were told to closely monitor all places of convergence in the city, particularly churches, restaurants, transport terminals, and shopping malls.

Police Assistance Desks will be set up in the said places.

Brillo also advised homeowners in the city that would be traveling during the Holy Week to properly lock their doors and windows to avoid being burglarized.

Earlier, the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office (NOCPPO) and the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG)-Northern Negros Occidental announced that they will also step up their security measures during Holy Week.

Based on NOCPPO’s deployment plans, police stations and units in the province will strictly follow the 90:10 ratio — 90 personnel will be assigned to conduct patrols, while 10 will perform office tasks at the police stations.

Meanwhile, PCG-Northern Negros Occidental will be placed on “full alert” status starting next week.

The PCG has also begun inspecting resorts in the province to make sure that they have available certified lifeguards./DGB, WDJ
