November 1, 2011 by staff 

All Saints Day, Public cemeteries in the city remained quiet closing time Tuesday as hundreds of security volunteers maintained order in such places, police said Tuesday.

Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) Director Melvin Ramon Buenafe said his office has not received any reports of major incidents during the celebration of All Saints Day on Tuesday. He said that cemeteries were not very crowded as others have already visited the graves of their loved ones during the previous days.

Based on its monitoring at noon on Tuesday, Buenafe said the volunteers and the security police confiscated only a few items such as illegal liquor bottles, bowls, and other weapons.

He said at least 1,000 troops were sent on Tuesday in several cemeteries in the city, and the implementation of security volunteers since last Saturday.

Volunteers helped human trafficking, searches on those who entered the cemetery, near the cemetery and patrolled to ensure peaceful and orderly observance of All Saints Day on Tuesday.

Police in the city remains on high alert, Buenafe said, because

criminals can exploit the fact that the houses were empty as families go to the cemetery to see a Filipino folk tradition. He said police will also secure the ports and terminals, people begin to return to the city for work and school after the long vacation.

In Mandaue City Police Director Noel Gillamac said that since last October 28, sent staff to eight public and private cemeteries in the city and the North Bus Terminal. Desks were also set up public safety, in charge of staff willing to help public support needed.

Gillamac said that compared to previous years, the crowd at the North Bus Terminal was easier to use because many chose to travel at the start of long weekend and avoid last minute rush.

He reminded homeowners to secure their homes, preferably the appointment of a neighbor or caregiver to monitor while visiting the cemetery.

At the same time, reminded the public not to leave electrical appliances unattended to avoid fire.
