AROUND 2,000 police and military troops would be deployed to ensure peace and order during the celebration of the 27th Kadayawan sa Dabaw Festival.
Senior Superintendent Ronald Dela Rosa, chief of Davao City Police Office (DCPO), said military and police personnel will be augmented by 70 personnel and 200 Scout Rangers from the Police Regional Office 11.
Dela Rosa added that civilian volunteers will also be tapped to secure participants and spectators in the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan (street dance competition) and Floral Float Parade, which draw the biggest crowd during the annual festival.
Dela Rosa said personnel from Task Force Davao (TFD), Traffic Management Center, Special Civilian Active Auxiliary Unit, police Anti-Crime Unit, and Public Safety Command Center, will also help intensify security measures.
"We have conducted meetings with organizers and on our part, we are already prepared for the event," dela Rosa said, adding that they will strengthen the implementation on gun ban as well as anti-crime operations.
Meanwhile, Colonel Marcos Norman S. Flores, TFD chief, said joint police and military checkpoints will be put up in all entry points of Davao City, aside from foot and mobile patrols. (ICT)
