Expect more policemen patrolling in terminals, ports and business areas like the malls in Cebu starting Friday, December 30.

In an interview on Friday morning, Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) director Sen. Supt. Joel Doria said that the CCPO and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has joined forces to conduct more security checks in areas where people are expected to gather for the New Year.

Doria said the joint operation is in preparation for the New Year when people are expected to do last minute shopping for the Media Noche or the midnight feast, family gatherings at the mall, and some go home to their home town to spend the New Year celebration with their families.

He added that there are no reports of any bomb threat in Cebu following what happened recently in Hilongos, Leyte where an improvised explosive device (IED) exploded in the park during a boxing event for the town’s fiesta celebration.
