The All Saints’ Day celebrations in Negros appeared to be generally peaceful, declared yesterday by provincial police spokesperson PLt. Abegael Donasco yesterday.

Donasco said that there were no reported major crimes in the province, as police personnel were placed on heightened alert.

Since October 30 up to November 2, all cemeteries and memorial parks were temporarily closed, based on the executive order issued by Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Donasco admitted that there were attempts by some to visit their dead relatives during those days.

They were barred from entering by police personnel and force multipliers manning the cemetery and memorial parks entrances, she added.

In a statement, PNP chief General Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar directed all police units to sustain enhanced visibility and anti-crime patrols to prevent street crimes.

Eleazar noted that incidents of street crimes tend to increase especially during the holiday season.

He also reminded the public to exercise caution and always be aware of their surroundings when outdoors especially this holiday season.*
