THE observance of the Holy Week in Davao was peaceful despite thousands of people flocking to the city's churches, said an official of the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) on Saturday. "Everything went through smoothly and peacefully," said Senior Inspector Leonardo Pamplona, deputy chief of DCPO's Intelligence and Detection Management Branch (IDMB).

Pamplona said the collaborative efforts of various law enforcement agencies pre-empted the occurrence of untoward incidents.

"So far, wala may mga dautan nga na hitabo. All activities during the Holy Week were done in orderly manner. Siguro naman nag participate kahit yung mga kriminals nagdadasal din yan," Pamplona said.

Pamplona added that he checked on their journal and no gang war, riot, or robbery was recorded.

Police Officer 1 Herministo Galupe, duty desk officer of the San Pedro police station, said the Holy Week has been quiet.

"From the start pa lang, nagbutang na ta dayon ug security. And I guess effective din yung aming tips na inilabas," Pamplona said.

He said people could expect police and military visibility for Easter Sunday activities.
