AROUND 700 policemen from the Cebu Police Provincial Office (CPPO) have been deployed to secure schools throughout Cebu City where the Pasigarbo sa Sugbo contingents from the different municipalities in the province are staying.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Mark Gifter Sucalit, deputy provincial director for operation of CPPO, also expressed readiness to enhance the security in case President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. would witness the event.

Lieutenant Colonel Maria Theresa Macatangay, Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) spokesperson, earlier announced that First Lady Liza Araneta Marcos and Vice President Sara Duterte might attend the event.

Around 1,300 police personnel will also be deployed by the CCPO to maintain peace and order during the event. (BBT, TPT)
