SOME 200 Cebu City policemen will be deployed in three local university campuses that will host the historic pilot implementation of the Bar examinations outside Manila this week, officials said yesterday.
The February 4 and 6, 2022 Bar examinations will be held at the University of Cebu in Banilad, University of San Carlos-Main, and University of San Jose Recoletos-Basak Pardo.
Police Regional Office 7 director Brigadier General Roque Edgardo Vega assured that the deployment of personnel will start early morning on the said dates to ensure that motorists around the vicinity of the campuses will be informed of temporary road closures.
The official also explained that the administrators of the listed schools requested that the rooms to be used for the bar exams must not be exposed to any unnecessary noise outside.
“We also discourage send-offs of the exam takers to avoid any gathering or convergence of people. We have to focus on how we can conduct the Bar exams in a safe and peaceful way,” Philippine National Police Chief General Dionardo B. Carlos said on his part.
“Also, we remind the examinees to strictly follow the health protocol before, during, and after taking every examination,” he added.
