BACOLOD CITY, June 1 — Police assistance desks have been set up in various schools in Negros Occidental, including Bacolod City, to secure students in public elementary and high schools who attended classes starting Monday.

The initiative is part of the heightened alert operations of Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office (NOPPO) and Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) for the school opening.

Senior Supt. Samuel Nacion, officer-in-charge of NOPPO, said city and municipal police station chiefs have been instructed to assign personnel to different schools.

Policemen were assigned to man the assistance desks in identified schools.

Nacion added that station chiefs are also coordinating with village officials for the participation of Barangay Peacekeeping Action Teams in maintaining peace and order in schools.

“We have also provided police hotline numbers to different schools so they can contact us for assistance,” he said.

In Bacolod, Senior Supt. Melchor Coronel, officer-in-charge of BCPO, also directed the 10 station chiefs to secure students and parents in schools within their respective areas of jurisdiction.

Traffic enforcers and motorcycle policemen are manning the traffic along school campuses, he said.

Police visibility and checkpoint operations are also intensified to preempt possible activities of snatchers and robbery hold-up suspects near schools. (PNA)
