BY ADRIAN NEMES III
The Philippine Army and the Philippine National Police bared yesterday their four-phase security methods to ensure peaceful, clean and safe elections in Negros Occidental.
During a Joint Peace and Security Coordinating Center meeting, Army Col. Jon Aying, 303 rd Infantry Brigade commander, said the first phase of their security method includes a week-long training for the army and police who will be assigned to polling precincts.
Aying said the second phase involves active checkpoints, combat and visibility operations and securing of the voting centers, the routes of the board of election inspectors to the voting centers, and the electorate.
