downgrade alert status

BY GILBERT BAYORAN

The Philippine National Police has downgraded from full alert to normal alert status in Negros Occidental starting Saturday, as the Police Regional Office 6 recalled its 300 policemen deployed in the province during election day.

Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz, officer-in-charge of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, yesterday said they are now back to anti-criminality operations.

NOPPO has not recorded any election-related or violent incidents on election day.

De la Paz said the violence-free election on May 13 was attributed to the close coordination of the military, police and Comelec, as well as the community.

Chief Supt. Agrimero Cruz, regional police director of Western Visayas, lauded the contribution of the 1,500 policemen deployed to six provinces of the region, to the success of the election.

Cruz commended the members of the augmentation forces for their loyalty, bravery and competence in the performance of election duties.* GPB
