Hotels told to step up security

Management of hotels in Bacolod City are urged to increase their security measures after three lodging houses were robbed of television sets, one after another, by a client, recently.

Supt. Armando Tubongbanua, Bacolod Police deputy city director for administration, said lodging houses should hire more uniformed and civilian security personnel, since a huge influx of visitors is expected this month.

Almost all the lodging houses in Bacolod are already fully-booked for the MassKara Festival, reports said.

Entrance and exits of establishments should have uniformed guards, Tubongbanua said, regular inspections must also be conducted.

Personnel must inform management of any unusual movement in their establishment to pre-empt untoward incidents, Tubongbanua said.

He said the suspect, who stole TV sets from MO2 Westown Hotel, a lodging house at Lacson Street, and the 11th Street Bed and Breakfast Pension House, also at Lacson Street, was believed to be under the influence of drugs.*SGG
