Peñafrancia 2016 | Inter-agency group convenes to ensure pilgrims' safety

NAGA CITY, Sept. 1 (PIA) --- Members of the Peñafrancia Inter-Agency Task Group-Joint Operations Center (JOC) recently convened to finalize the security plans and deployment of personnel in strategic locations in the city to ensure the safety of the pilgrims, including the local and foreign tourists who are expected to flock in the city in the upcoming Peñafrancia festivity.


Mayor John Bongat, who also chairs the JOC, wanted to maintain the solemnity and peaceful holding of the annual celebration of the Feast of our Lady of Peñafrancia issuing a strict directive to the city’s law enforcement agencies, particularly the Naga City Police Office (NCPO) to ensure that the security plans are properly in place.

NCPO, under the headship of Police Senior Supt. Julius S. Muñez, already requested the augmentation of personnel coming from the Philippine National Police (PNP) Bicol regional office and an additional augmentation of 100 personnel from Camarines Sur Police Provincial Office (CSPPO) as police voyadores during the Traslacion and Fluvial processions.

Muñez also requested for 12 police mobile cars that would simultaneously do rounds in the city thoroughfares to ward off personalities who intend to commit unlawful acts and take advantage of the busy occasion.

NCPO also requested for the availability of K9 from the Aviation Security Group particularly during the highlights of the event, which are the foot and water procession.

Muñez also enjoined the civilians, pilgrims and those who want to witness the festivity to also take precautions and be vigilant in the midst of the crowd.

Wearing of expensive jewelries, bringing large amount of money and other expensive gadgets are also highly discouraged.

In all confined areas of activities, the NCPO also forewarned pilgrims not to bring back packs, caps, hoodies, glass bottles, sharp objects or deadly weapons, fire arms, liquors and other intoxicating beverages.

Car owners are also discouraged to park or be on the way or be en route the procession path.

Strict implementation of the city ordinance in relation to traffic laws, street vending and other related peace and order laws shall be fully observed. Multipliers and other groups will be highly utilized to ensure that more peacekeepers are on the street to ensure peace and order on the grounds. (LSMacatangay-PIA5/Camarines Sur)
