PNP set for “Undas” in SurSur

By Greg Tataro Jr.

TANDAG CITY, Oct. 26 (PIA) – All units of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Surigao del Sur headed by Officer-In-Charge (OIC) Provincial Director P/SSupt. Narciso Verdadero are now set for the security plan intended for the November 1 and 2 observances of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.

Verdadero expressed confidence that all chiefs of police (COPs) under his command have already prepared the necessary security and safety plans, dubbed as “Oplan Kaluluwa.” 

Early this month, police chiefs have already been briefed of the annual occasion during the holding of the three-day Performance Governance System (PGS) reporting held on October 6-9 at the conference room of the Police Provincial Office (PPO), he said.

 The reminder consisted of the coordination with all friendly forces, “barangay tanods” included, who they consider force multiplier in order to ensure maintenance of peace and order, he bared.


Verdadero added that during such observance, police forces are deployed in cemeteries to check whether the so-called “bans” on liquor, gambling, deadly weapons, and other gadgets or equipment believed to defile the solemnity of the occasion are strictly adhered to.
