PNP Caraga commended for peaceful "Undas"

Police Chief Superintendent Jaime Eloreta Milla, Regional Director, Police Regional Office 13 commended his officers and men for the peaceful and meaningful celebration of All Saints' and All Souls' Day in November 1-2 this year.

General Milla also emphasized the strong cooperation between the local government units, CVOs, Barangay Tanods, Traffic Aides and non-government organizations that helped immensely the police in curbing criminality and managing internal security threats during the two day national celebration.

In preparation for the Undas, PRO 13 had adopted several measures to ensure public safety and orderliness. They put up "Police Assistance Centers" in cemeteries, planed traffic rerouting in congested areas and placed traffic personnel therein, secured strategic locations such as ports, airports and bus terminals as well as business establishments and resorts where people go after visiting their departed love ones.

For their part, the local government units augmented the police personnel with their civil security units, traffic aides and barangay tanods. Non-government organizations provided water stations, directory assistance and medical support in some areas.

General Milla notes that "the just concluded Undas shows that if the community and the police work together…cooperate with one another… synergize their actions… peace and order is easily achieved." After this he looks forward to more cooperative endeavors with the local government units and non-government organizations in making Caraga a safe region ideal for sustainable development and economic growth.
