DAVAO CITY April 7 (PIA)- Efforts by the Task Force Davao to spread awareness on anti-terrorism efforts have produced a more vigilant citizenry.
Col. Erwin Bernard Neri, Task Force Davao commander said they are constantly doing anti-terrorism drive as means of raising the level of awareness of the public and the other stakeholders to the threat of terrorism.
Col. Neri said from the time he assumed the office as TF Davao commander last September 8, 2016 the Task Force Davao has received about 100 reports and tips from citizens.
Many of the reports are concerning unattended bags and other suspicious things.
Neri and TF Davao are currently intensifying an awareness campaign where they are distributing car stickers and pins to passenger van operators, drivers and passengers.
The sticker which bears the words “Let Us Fight Terrorism” exhorts the public to their share in combating terrorism.
“Security is everybody’s concern. We must always be vigilant.” Neri said.
It can be noted that Col. Neri’s appointment came at the heels of the deadly Roxas Night Market Bombing which occurred last September 2, 2016 that killed 15 bystanders. (PIA/RG Alama)
