Taguig gears up security for Semana Santa

The local government of Taguig, in close coordination with the Taguig Police, will beef up security against crimes and other untoward incidents in several areas all over the city in time for the commemoration of the Holy Week.

“This is a time for reflection. We also acknowledge that this is also a time when people go home to their provinces to be with families and relatives and take advantage of the long vacation. With that, we commit to ensuring the safety of residents, travelers and tourists during this time,” Mayor Lani Cayetano said.

According to Senior Superintendent Arthur Felix Asis, the Taguig PNP will be deploying additional personnel in areas of convergence and areas that might be prone to incidences of criminal activity.

“An upsurge of crowds at bus stations and major thoroughfares are expected as people go on vacation during the entire Holy Week. The Taguig police will launch aggressive police security operations and will maximize deployment of traffic enforcers within our area of responsibility,” Asis said.

He added that they will also be conducting police patrols “round-the-clock” to secure residential areas and places that are densely populated.

They will also establish Public Assistance Centers (PACs), as well as “Lakbay Alalay” Motorist Assistance Centers for fast response in cases of vehicular accidents.

“Travelers and tourists need not to worry because we are doing everything to make the Lenten season peaceful so that no untoward incident will happen,” Mayor Lani said. ###
