BCPO DEPLOYS POLICEMEN IN CEMETERIES WITHIN THE CITY
BUTUAN CITY – The Butuan City Police Office (BCPO) started deploying cops in every public and private cemetery in the city on October 27, Tuesday.
PCapt. Emerson Alipit, acting spokesperson of BCPO said in an interview that it is to ensure strict adherence of the public to the health protocols before October 29 as they come together for the observation of All Saints’ Day.
BCPO assures the stringent implementation of the quarantine pass color-coding scheme, wearing of facemask and face shield, social distancing, and the restriction of minors from going out.
“ Don sa executive order na nakita natin wala po tayong nakita doon na dinidisregard yong color coding , so ganun din satin ina advise natin , syempre wag naman po buong pamilya yong dadalaw , kaya yong sa color coding natin doon natin mamiminimize yong taong papasok sa mga sementeryo,” said PCapt. Alipit.
(We see that the color coding quarantine pass is not disregarded under the executive order, so we are just also advising the same. Of course, we hope that it’s not the whole family who will visit. The color coding scheme will minimize the convergence of people to the cemeteries. )
The official further said that there are mobile patrols roving around every cemetery to check the area. The policemen also appealed to the public to observe the health protocol standard and not be hardheaded to avoid the notice of violation issuance or worse the lawsuit.
It can be recalled that the government has previously advised the closure of all private and public cemeteries staring October 29 until November 4 to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus.
