Security plans vs terrorism set up
by Hanna C. Lacsamana

The Baguio City Police Office guarantees a round the clock heightened alert against those who may be plottingterror acts in the city following the events in Mindanao, Metro Manila, and similar spots in the country that are potential areas for terrorists.

Without divulging the details of their operational strategic plan, S/Supt. Ramil Saculles, BCPO director, said the entire city police force is on their toes to prevent possible terror acts, using recent history as their basis and the city’s comparable state with the areas in the country that were recently attacked by terrorists.

He said as in Davao City, Manila, Bohol, as well as Marawi City, Baguio City is a perfect spot for such lawless activities for having a night market and being a center of tourism in the north.

He said checkpoints are definitely being employed in the city, as is done in Marawi, to provide police visibility.

“Maybe it’s not a perfect way, but it provides more visible police on the streets. It will be for 24 hours, seven days a week. Mas maganda na kami na ang nandoon kaysa sa sila (lawless elements) ang nasa kalsada. Hindi rin tutulugan ng aking mga police commanders ang night market. They will always be on heightened alert,” Saculles said in a media briefing on Monday.

He said the BCPO, however, needs reinforcement of 200 to 300 more police personnel, given the city’s prevailing conditions.

He said the office has already requested for additional manpower through the police security forces recruitment, which is a special quota, but such appeal should be supported by a city council resolution. He said they are waiting for the approval of the accompanying measure.

To avoid incidents such as that of Resorts World Manila perpetrated by a lone gunman who killed more than 30 people, Saculles said the BCPO has engaged the president of the association of detectives and security agencies in the Cordillera about their security procedures.

He said the coordination aims to require all security and detective agencies to update their protocols or standard operating procedures in securing establishments whom they are hired to protect.

“That is a program in the making. After they made their update, we will review their protocols,” Saculles said.
