CEBU CITY, Philippines — The deputy director of the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) has assessed that the stricter the implementation of the health protocols in the city, the lesser the COVID-19 cases recorded.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Wilbert Parilla, deputy director for operations of CCPO, said this following the assessment they had from their August 3 to 21 apprehensions as Cebu City had been under the modified enhanced community quarantine. Parilla cited Police Stations 5 and 6 with the most apprehensions but with lesser COVID-19 cases.

From August 3 to 21, Parilla said that Police Station 5 (Carbon Market) recorded 708 apprehensions with 37 COVID cases, and Police Station 6 (Sawang Calero) reported 634 violators apprehended with 104 COVID-cases. Considering that these stations had congested areas of jurisdiction, Parilla said that there was really a relation in stricter implementation of health protocols in the lessening of the COVID-19 cases in Cebu City.

With this, Parilla directed all the police stations to ensure stricter implementation of health protocols and set stations 5 and 6 as examples. He said that these stations had lesser personnel considering that they also had a few COVID-19 cases.

Meanwhile, Cebu City policemen conducted their one-day Simultaneous Anti-Criminality Law Enforcement Operations (SACLEO) last August 21. All police stations conducted their operations in their respective areas of jurisdictions.

Parilla said that from the one-day SACLEO, they had arrested 119 individuals, 39 of whom were suspected drug personalities.
