City Mayor Rolando “Klarex” Uy reminded the Cagayan de Oro City Police (Cocpo) to step up security measures of the city, especially since more Kagay-anons are out shopping for Christmas.

“Kinahanglan alerto gyud ang atong kapulisan. Gani, mismo makita naman ninyo ang atong mga kapulisan nga anaa na sa kadalanan,” the city mayor said.

On Tuesday evening, Mayor Klarex Uy, together with the 20th City Council, headed by Vice Mayor Jocelyn “Bebot” Rodriguez, led the launching of the “Festival of Lights,” brightening up the City Hall and Gaston Park with white Christmas lights, touching on the theme “White Christmas.”

According to the city mayor, he chose the said theme to show unity among the people and the city, as well as express the belief that the Christmas season is about hope and love.

“White Christmas man mao ni ang kahulogan sa panaghiusa, mao nay kahulogan nga pure nga gugma nga maoy mag-awhag nga puno sa paglaom nga aduna pa gyu’y dakong paglaom nga gikan sa gugma sa Diyos,” Mayor Klarex Uy said.

“Mao ni ang atong tinguha kay kun wala tay gugma, dili ta magpalampuson sa pagserbisyo sa katawhan. Dili ta makahatag og kadasig sa katawhan. Gugma ang tinubdan sa pag-alagad, gugma nga magserbisyo nga malipayon ta sa katawhan,” he added.

The city mayor also reminded the public to keep themselves safe during the celebration of the Christmas season.

City Police Director Colonel Aaron Mandia, for his part, said while they have not received any threats, they will increase police visibility while monitoring security of the city.

Col. Mandia said around 50 regional police personnel will serve as an augmentation force to secure areas where crowds usually converge, and the busy streets in Cagayan de Oro.

“Ngayon po start na po tayo ng December. Busy ang lahat, busy ang kalsada, ma-traffic, maraming taong pumupunta sa establishments. Panawagan ko lang po, lalo na sa mga may mga alahas, wag na po tayong magdala, lalo na kung naglalakad tayo sa mga lugar na maraming tao,” Col. Mandia said.
