LINGAYEN, Philippines – The muzzle of the service firearms of police officers and personnel of the Pangasinan police were sealed with tape following yesterday’s flag-raising ceremony here.

The tape-sealing of the guns was led by Senior Superintendent Rolie Saltat, officer-in-charge of the provincial police in a ceremony held at the police headquarters here.

The sealing of the lawmen’s firearms was meant to prevent indiscriminate firing during the Christmas and New Year revelries.

Saltat told his men that no one among them is expected to fire a gun without a valid reason. He said the guns should not be fired except during a legitimate police operation and when the lives of the policemen are in danger.

He said police officers would regularly patrol areas frequented by people and more officers would be deployed in churches, especially when dawn masses start this week.
