Police go on red alert
for opening of classes


The 1,400-strong Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office was placed on red alert status yesterday, as about 300,000 students at various levels in the province as reported by the Department of Education, will troop to schools today.

Senior Supt. Manuel Felix, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, yesterday said “Oplan Balik Paaralan” is now in effect in all towns and cities of the province, as policemen and traffic enforcers will be deployed near the schools to ensure the safety of students and teachers.

Under the campaign plan, Felix said the priority concerns of the PNP are incidents of street crimes such as pickpocketing, snatching, swindling, and robbery/hold-up.moremoremore
