ALAMINOS- Village heads of this city underwent a whole day seminar on Personal Safety for Elected Government Officials last November 22 as a response to the brutal killing of the city’s Liga ng mga Barangay President Salvador “Badong” Camba.

The seminar, sponsored jointly by the Liga, Philippine National Police (PNP) and the city government, ensured that local officials of the city will not be taking their personal security lightly.

Liga President Raul Bacay, who succeeded Camba, said the seminar will make them worry-free from the attacks of criminals.

“It made us worry about our personal security. It became a serious concern especially that we are vulnerable to possible attacks while performing our duties and responsibilities as village officials,” Bacay said.

Bacay, the incumbent village head of Lucap, acknowledged that there’s always the possibility of someone may cause harm to the elected officials wherever they are out of anger, personal reasons and bad motives.

“We have to protect ourselves. We are very grateful to Mayor Arthur F. Celeste and P/Supt. Benjamin Ariola for helping us spearhead this very timely and worthy endeavor for all of us barangay officials,” Bacay said.

Mayor Celeste has reminded the attendees of the seminar to be very cautious and mind their safety and security while in public and elsewhere.

He also encouraged the village leaders to make the most out of the one-day seminar.

“This is the best time for you to renew your commitment to heighten your respective personal security. Share what you have learned to your fellow officials to ensure a more peaceful and orderly city,” Celeste said.

OIC-Chief of Police Ariola, shared also some important personal security tips to the village officials.

In his lecture, Ariola challenged the village leaders to strengthen their network and impose necessary measures to deter possible criminal activities in their respective villages.

He said  PNP will remain as their strong partner in serving and protecting the city folk.
