On September 6, he called for a Provincial Peace and Order Council Special Meeting at the Farmer's Training Hall, Capitol Compound, Burabod, here to discuss the measures to be done in connection with the declaration with police officials, military officials, and representatives from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

In said meeting, Rodrigueza called for the public's support and cooperation as they tighten security measures.

Meanwhile, Sorsogon Provincial Police Office OIC Senior Supt. Ronaldo Cabral, who attended the meeting said their team is focused on increasing police visibility and designating additional checkpoints.
