AFP taps help of private security agencies

THE military’s Task Force Zamboanga (TFZ) has tapped the assistance of the different security agencies to help them and the local police in the maintenance of peace and order in Zamboanga City.

TFZ chief Colonel Darwin Guerra said the assistance of the security agencies, whose guards are detailed in almost every business establishment downtown, is a big help to them in monitoring the presence of lawless elements.

Guerra said it would be easy for the security guards to detect the presence of lawless elements since most if not all of the business establishments downtown have private security personnel posted on the entrance and exit doors.

“All they have to do is to report to us, the military or police, for proper action and to avert any attempt of sabotage in our place,” Guerra said.

Guerra however did not disclose whether there is an eminent threat to the city. He simply explained that it is better to be prepared at all times.

Three foreign embassies have earlier issued travel advisory warnings for their citizens against traveling to Mindanao due to terror threats on foreign nationals.

Guerra also urged the village officials to conduct monitoring in their respective places to deny entry of any lawless groups in their villages.(SunStarZamboanga)
