CEBU CITY, Philippines — It is still the start of the week, but the Talisay City police have already caught another 27 individuals during their morning patrol today, July 6, 2020, around the city.

The joint patrol, which was made up of policemen, soldiers and jail guards, was implemented after Talisay City Mayor Gerald Anthony “Samsam” Gullas Jr. requested for regular patrols and recorrida around the city to ensure that GCQ protocols were observed.

Police Major Gerard Ace Pelare, chief of Talisay Police Station, said that they arrested 27 violators of the GCQ protocols when they patrolled Barangays Bulacao, Tabunok, Lagtang, Lawaan 2-3 and Linao.

Last Friday, during one of the joint patrols, they also arrested 27 individuals, violators of the GCQ protocols.
