LINGAYEN – The Pangasinan Provincial Police Office (PPPO) said  none of its more than 2,000 personnel fired his or her issued firearm during the Yuletide season starting from Dec. 21 to Jan. 2.
Sr. Supt. Reynaldo Biay, PPPO officer-in-charge, said this was shown by the result of simultaneous inspection and removal of the masking tapes on the muzzles of firearms of these police personnel province-wide last Jan. 2.
He said the result showed the masking tapes put around the muzzles of the firearms were intact, indicating that none of the police personnel in the province violated the order not to fire their firearms.
The masking tapes were personally signed and counter-signed by police officers and it was themselves who conducted the inspection and removed the tapes.
However, Biay ordered the investigation of the persons who conducted indiscriminate firing before the New Year wherein three persons were injured by stray bullets in separate places in Pangasinan.
Injured by stray bullets were a four-year old boy from Sto. Domingo, Tayug; a woman from Barangay Malabago, Calasiao; and another woman from Bantog . Asingan.
Meanwhile, the six empty shells found by the police in the premises of a person from the Diamond Subdivision in Barangay Pantal, Dagupan City were submitted by the police for ballistic examination in a bid to find out the owner of the hand gun from where these empty shells came from.

One Fred Santos was complained by his neighbors on New Year’s eve as having allegedly fired his hand gun indiscriminately. But he was nowhere to be found when sought out by the police in his house.
Meanwhile, the Provincial Health Office reported that 150 persons were treated of firecracker-related injuries all over Pangasinan as a result of the New Year revelry. (PNA)
