LAPU-LAPU CITY, Philippines — The Lapu-Lapu City Police Office (LCPO) has already placed themselves in full alert status in lieu of the upcoming celebration of Christmas and New Year.

Due to this, Lim said that they had already minimized the leave of absence of his personnel.

Lim said that he had already ordered his unit commanders to maximize the deployment of their personnel.

“Manindot pa gyud atong security coverage para sa Ligtas Kapaskohan, but mao nato, ang basic nga i-ensure nato nga tanang simbahan during Simbang Gabi. Naa gyud na siyang mga security personnel, maximum number of personnel assigned in LCPO,” he added.
