Stricter security measures to be enforced at Davao City’s San Pedro Square


The Davao City Public Safety and Security Command (PSSCC) will implement maximum security at San Pedro Square, which is the center of activities of Pasko Fiesta.

PSSCC head Angel Sumagaysay urged the cooperation of the public for smooth implementation of the security measures.

“We will apply the maximum-security measures for the vicinity of city hall and SP (Sangguniang Panlungsod) building primarily because of the various activities every night,” he said.

Sumagaysay said that part of the measures is the designation of parking areas for the public in the vicinity of City Hall and SP.

It could be recalled that San Pedro Square was declared as a maximum-security zone. This means that no vehicles will be allowed to park around the area after 5 p.m. while motorcycles’ designated parking space is at the back of the City Hall, Osmeña Park and SP building.

“Everything will be the same, it just that there will be more presence of security forces in the area to check the situation for any eventualities,” he said.

He said there is augmentation from Police Regional Office (PRO) 11 to ensure that all areas will be covered for security reasons. #
