Lieutenant Colonel Eduard Sanchez, director for Operation Management Unit of the Lapu-Lapu City Police Office (LLCPO), told SunStar Cebu that as of Friday, July 29, about 936 police personnel are expected to be deployed in various areas in the city starting August 4 to August 7.

He said around 60 personnel will be assigned for the arrival of delegates or participants on August 4 and 5, while 125 uniformed men will be deployed for the Ironkids event on August 6.

During the main event on August 7, about 751 personnel will be deployed in various areas, said Sanchez.

But the director said there may be reinforcements of personnel amid the series of meetings in preparation for the big event.

Aside from those personnel assigned, there will be security personnel designated in Barangay Punta Engaño, Mactan, Maribago, Agus, Marigondon and Suba Basbas.
