This city's various activities during the entire Yuletide season were a complete success, safe and secure as the security personnel beefed up their security measures for the entire celebration.

Despite several bombing incidents in the nearby provinces with the same bomb signature used in the Roxas Night Market bombing here, the Davaoeṅos enjoyed the entire celebration without letting their guards down.

Public Safety and Security Command Center chief Benito De Leon said that the entire Christmas and New Year’s celebration was safe and secure because of the “collective efforts” of the different offices and the community as well.

“I attribute the safe conduct of the entire celebration to the collective efforts of the City Government, Davao City Police Office, Task Force Davao, Central 911, Emergency Medical Technicians and the people’s cooperation that endured it,” he said.

De Leon said that they have maintained the full alert status since the Sept. 2 bombing in the city.

Task Force Davao Commander, Col Erwin Neri said that his troops intensified the Area security, mobile and foot patrol and fixed and random checkpoints in the entire city to ensure the safety of every Davaoeṅos enjoying the festivity.

“The entire celebration was safe and secure since everybody coordinated and we have intensified our entire security measures to avoid terrorism from entering the city,” Neri said.

It can be recalled that the recent bombing in Hilongos, Leyte has the same bomb signature used in the Davao blast.
