Safety protocol for subdivisions mulled

THE  City Council committee on police, fire and public safety chaired by Councilor Romeo Calizo discussed a proposed ordinance providing for the security protocol in all subdivisions in the city.

Among the invited guests were representatives of the Cagayan de Oro city Police Office, City Planning and Development Office, City Housing and Urban Development Department, and presidents of various subdivisions in the city.

The purpose of the meeting was to solicit ideas from these guests particularly on the needed provisions that will be incorporated in the draft ordinance.

The ordinance cites the need to involve residents of the city, particularly those living in subdivisions, to adopt security measures and help the authorities in gathering the needed security-related information and convey these to the duly-constituted authorities to enable the latter to undertake urgent measures to address peace and order concerns.

It also cites the need for subdivisions to strengthen their respective homeowners associations to be the pivotal partners of the duly constituted authorities in gathering and reporting of information on security concerns to their respective areas of jurisdiction.

The proposed law provides the protocol to be followed in  subdivisions and  requires every homeowner association to hire security guards to man the entrance and exit points of their subdivision for security monitoring purposes, as well as to closely monitor  persons and vehicles entering and leaving the subdivisions.

It requires subdivision associations to report to duly authorized officials any suspicious character or incident within their respective areas.

All these and other relevant issues will be finalized and discussed during the next committee meeting, Calizo said. (clo)
