PRO 6 calls on public vigilance vs. terror activities

ILOILO CITY, Aug. 25 (PIA) – The Police Regional Office 6 calls on everyone to be more vigilant following the bombing incidents in Jolo, Sulu on August 24.

In an official statement issued by PRO 6, it noted that “currently, the whole of Western Visayas is under Terrorism Threat Level 1 which means that we have no monitored threats in the entire region.”

In order to reduce the chance of a terrorist attack in our neighborhood, the said office suggested some things that everyone must keep in mind to help the police force prevent the terroristic activities.

“Everyone must keep an eye for suspicious situations or personalities. One of the best examples is reporting to authorities any suspicious unattended baggages and presence of scrupulous individuals,” it said.

It added “everyone is encouraged to be more vigilant in going to places of convergence such as malls and terminals because these are the usual targets of terrorists.”

 “When visiting buildings or closed spaces, be reminded to always check on emergency exits; and never leave your belongings unattended,” it stressed.

Terrorist groups’ aim is to sow fear among people and gain the attention of the international media by destroying innocent lives and properties.

“The more that we are afraid, the more that they will prevail. So let us work together to prevent terrorist attacks and preserve the peace and order that we enjoy here in Western Visayas,” the PRO 6 official statement said. (PIA6/PRO6-RPIO)
