City Information Officer and Anti-Crime Task Force head Richard Ligad shares his observed success on decreasing the number of minors caught at night in Puerto Princesa due to curfew implementation.

The city government’s strict implementation of its curfew policy has decreased the incidence of minors being out in the streets past 10 p.m.

City information officer and Anti-Crime Task Force (ACTF) head Richard Ligad said that the numbers decreased from 42 minors during the first night of their campaign down to eight minors in October.

“Hindi ko alam kung nagtatago na sila. Dati kasi lantaran sila na nasa kalsada, nasa gilid ng mga kalsada particular dyan sa Wescom road,” he said.

Ligad said that their team noticed that minors would hide whenever ACTF mobile cars pass through the roads of every barangay. He said this helps to improve the implementation of the program.

“Ngayon, pagkadaan ng mobile, tatago na sila. Dati hindi nila pinapansin yong mobile. Ang ginagawa naming ngayon yong pick up ng CIO, unidentified yon. ‘Yon ang ginagamit nila na nauuna. ‘Yon nakakahuli sila pero hindi na tulad ng dati na marami,” he said.

“Marami na ngayon ang lima o walo sa isang araw, merong araw na bokya pa. Sabi ko maganda naman yon. Kung nagtatago lang at least meron na ano ngayon kung kabataan, hindi tulad dati na lantaran, na-i-expose sila sa gabi,” Ligad added.
