“Nagsulti ko sa mga principal nga naa may gihatag nga number ang police sa inyoha, maka-request sila anytime kun naa bay makita nila nga kakulian para ma-prevent nato,” Lim said.

Lim said that he also ordered his sub-station commanders to patrol schools  and ensure the security of students even after their classes.

“Mao lagi na inig tingbuhi na, especially during nighttime, kanang night school, nagpa-detail gyud ta ug police ug coordinate ta sa school para sa specific nga detalye for the purpose of security sa mao nga school,” he added.

Lim said the LCPO is in constant coordination with the Department of Education (DepEd) regarding other security concerns on the start of classes.

He described the opening of classes on August 29 in the city as peaceful and successful.
