Security upgrade sought in Tagum’s checkpoints

In its effort to further strengthen the city’s agenda for genuine peace, safety and security, the local government unit of Tagum has passed a resolution to heighten the security of the existing checkpoints in the city.

This order has been decreed in response to the request of the City Peace and Order Council which consists of members from the local law-enforcement agencies hoping to implement a security upgrade within Tagum city.

The Philippine National Police and Armed Forces of the Philippines is currently conducting 24-hour patrols and extensive inspection at checkpoints located at strategic areas.

In a joint meeting of the City Peace and Order Council, City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council and City Anti-Drug Abuse Council last August 13, issues pertaining to the recent killing incidents in the city were discussed thereby urging the need to intensify the city’s security measures.

Tagum City Chief of Police Philip Jefferson S. Ayban also denied the threat warnings disseminated allegedly by the Tagum Police circulating through social media, saying that legit advisories coming from their office are only posted on the official facebook page of the Tagum City Police Station.

PSUPT Ayban also urges the public to report any suspicious person in any area at Tagum city and call immediately Police Station Hotline number @ 09267171522Drex Rafols/CIO Tagum
