The City’s top policeman bared that 2,400 violators had been arrested since the curfew was reimposed in Davao City.

Colonel Kirby John Kraft, director of the Davao City Police Office revealed that 18 people were arrested the other night in the respective areas of jurisdiction of the Sta. Ana and Talomo Police Precincts since the liquor ban was again implemented up to December 31 this year.

He said that as of the other night, 24 people were arrested for curfew violation.

“The young still want to go out. They comprise the great number of curfew violators,” Kraft observed.

He said people seem to be fed up of the situation though majority of the residents have been complying with the health protocols such wearing face masks, social distancing, washing of hands with soap and water and alcohol.

Kraft said the situation calls for everyone to be responsible especially that the COVID-19 infection in Davao City is caused by those who always go out of their houses.

He also disclosed that as far as the city police is concerned, four policemen from Sta. Ana Police Station have been isolated and are awaiting results while all policemen and detainees at the Toril Police Precinct have totally recovered from COVID-19 infection.

“It is likely that the police got afflicted while they implement the law,” Kraft said.

He also revealed that three new police stations are already operational namely Police Station 13 in Mandug, Police Station 15 in Ecoland and Police Station 17 in Baliok.

Kraft said there are 54 police personnel in every police precinct.
