SOUTHERN Police District director, Brigadier General Leon Victor Z. Rosete called on the citizenry yesterday to maintain their vigilance and quickly report all suspicious activities in the streets and their neighborhood to help authorities fight criminals specifically motorcycle-riding robbers and killers.

The official said that although they remain on top of the situation in the southern part of Metro Manila, they need all the help they can get from the public to thwart and arrest criminality.

“We cannot tackle this challenge alone. We urge members of the community to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities or information that may assist us in our investigations. Your cooperation is invaluable in our collective efforts to ensure the safety of our neighborhoods,” he said.

“In times like these, it is crucial that we stand together as a community. Let us unite against violence and work towards a community where every resident can live without fear,” Brig. Gen. Rosete added.

The SPD director admitted they are deeply troubled by the recent surge in shooting incidents within our community.

“We understand the fear and concern this has generated among residents, and we want to assure you that the safety and security of every individual remains our top priority,” he said.

Brig. Gen. Rosete has ordered stepped-up foot and mobile patrols and the setting up of checkpoints in strategic parts of southern Metro Manila which is composed of the cities of Makati, Pasay, Parañaque, Muntinlupa, Las Piñas and Taguig and the municipality of Pateros.

These proactive measures are aimed at deterring criminal activity and providing a visible deterrent to potential offenders, he explained while ordering his men to redouble their efforts in addressing this pressing issue.

This week, SPD agents have accounted for several armed lawbreakers as a result of their intensified conduct of checkpoints and patrols.
