PRO8 Fortifies Holy Week Celebration


Camp Ruperto Kangleon, Palo, Leyte – Police Regional Office 8 under the leadership of Eastern Visayas Police Director, PBGEN DIONARDO BERNARDO CARLOS fortifies the celebration of this Holy week by deploying police personnel in places of worship all over the region.

A total of 340 personnel were deployed prior Palm Sunday in different places of worship to include churches and “pamanataan” region wide to assure the safety and security of devotees and churchgoers. Likewise, checkpoints were established to preempt any untoward incident during the Lenten season.

“The presence of our police is a big help in preventing crime or any eventuality that might happen while the public is showing their devotion. We cannot allow that this holy week be tainted of any bad incident. I will also roam around the region to personally inspect the security situation of our AOR,” RD Carlos said.

The public is expected to cooperate with the authorities for safe, secured and holy celebration of the Lenten season.
