LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu—Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan reiterates his standing order to the Philippine National Police (PNP) to intensify its implementation of peace and order in the city and police visibility in strategic areas.

Chan made such a statement one week after a jewelry store inside a mall in Barangay Basak was victimized by members of a “Salisi Gang” that took around P800,000 worth of jewelry.

The mayor wants police to intensify visibility, especially that it’s Christmas season.

“Nagpabilin pa na atong standing order sa kapulisan nga atoa gyud pahugtan ang pagbantay sa kahapsay ug kalinaw. Ato gyud nang gi-instruct nila nga atoang mga mobile patrol nga naay mga strategic area nga ilang butangan, ug naa ta’y mga reports nga naay mga panghitabo kinahanglan butangan nato ug mga police, kinahanglan nga visible gyud atong police,” Chan said.

To help prevent any form of criminalities, Chan said that he will also continue installing street lights, especially in interior barangays that have dark alleys.

“Karon atoa gyud gipaspasan ang pag-istalar ug suga mga interior part,” he added, saying that they are targeting to complete the installation of street lights before Christmas.

Chan added that the city will also install additional CCTV cameras throughout the city.

He urged private establishments to also install CCTV cameras within their vicinity.

“Ang atoang CCTV nagpadayon ug pag-install, gani nagdungag ta ug CCTV cameras and we also encouraged private establishments to have their own CCTV cameras para sa pagsanta sa mga mobuhat ug dili maayo,” he said.
