LINGAYEN, Pangasinan, June 1 — No untoward incident happened the whole day on Monday in all schools in Pangasinan when pupils and students returned to their respective classes after a two-month summer vacation.

Supt. Ferdinand De. Asis, police community relations officer, said this was gleaned from reports of all police chiefs in Pangasinan who were given marching order by Senior Supt. Belli Tamayo, officer-in-charge of the local police, to focus their operations on "Oplan Balik Eskwela" (Return to School) to protect pupils and students returning to their classes.

He said policemen put up police desk or the Complaint Action Referral Team (CART) in front of big schools where pupils and students can go to and complain whenever they are being bullied or being victimized by outsiders and help detect the presence of illegal drugs.

He said there were uniformed policemen and plainclothes policemen posted near big schools and were ready to move in case of any untoward incident.

Other policemen were moving around in the markets, in the streets and in every place of convergence to prevent crimes, he said.

Everything was peaceful and orderly in all schools in 48 towns and cities of Pangasinan and this could not be attributed alone to the presence of policemen but also to the cooperation of people of the communities who helped maintain the peace, De Asis said. (PNA)
