CEBU CITY, Philippines — There will now be 180 Task Force Kasaligan members helping police to enforce quarantine and health protocols in Cebu City with 62 more new members expected to join those 118 members who were deployed earlier this month.

“Mao ni sila atong last batch kay mao na ni sila ang gi allot nga personnel sa Kasaligan na 180 kabuok,” said Police Lieutenant Colonel Wilbert Parilla, Deputy City Director for Operations of Cebu City Police Office, in a press briefing.

(This is the last batch because these are the number of personnel allotted for Kasaligan which are 180 members.)

Parilla said that 62 new TF Kasaligan members started their orientation yesterday and would end on Friday, February 26. 

He said that these new batch would be deployed possibly on the first week of March.

Parilla cited the task force’s help in enforcing the health protocols.

He said the previous Kasaligan batches, the 62 would be divided and would form into teams headed by a policeman.

Their job is to patrol the Cebu City barangays to help enforce health and quarantine protocols.

When the Kasaligan members started working with the policemen, more violators were apprehended.

He said on these days, there were fewer apprehensions of quarantine and health safety protocol violators.

He said this would mean that the teams with TF Kasaligan members were effective in helping enforce the quarantine and health safety measures in the city.

Parilla said that the additional Kasaligan members would be deployed next week and would work with the police in monitoring the stricter implementation of the “Stay at Home Sunday” and the closure of all establishments on Sunday to limit mobility of the people and prevent the spread of the virus in some barangays in Cebu City.
