Talisay City creates 5th discipline zone
“Like Tabunok, Bulacao is also considered as a commercial center because of the presence of banks, commercial establishments and other businesses. With a DZ, this could help deter petty crimes aimed towards the clientele of local businesses there,” said Talisay City Mayor Gerald Anthony “Samsam” Gullas Jr.

Talisay City creates 5th discipline zone

CEBU, Philippines — The city government of Talisay together with its police force has established its fifth “discipline zone” which is located in Barangay Bulacao.

The discipline zone shows reminders to be mindful of the minimum health protocols such as wearing face masks and observing social distancing to protect one’s self from COVID-19.

This also aims to prevent vandalism, littering, smoking in public places, drinking of liquor along or besides the road, illegal parking, curfew, among others.

The four other discipline zones include those in barangays Poblacion, Dumlog, Cansojong and Tabunok.

“Like Tabunok, Bulacao is also considered as a commercial center because of the presence of banks, commercial establishments and other businesses. With a DZ, this could help deter petty crimes aimed towards the clientele of local businesses there,” said Talisay City Mayor Gerald Anthony “Samsam” Gullas Jr.

Gullas also relayed that its police chief, Lieutenant Colonel Gerard Ace Pelare noted a decrease of violations in discipline zones.

“Nalipay ko ani because our DZs are doing what they are designed to do, which is to remind our constituents to follow and abide by our laws,” said Gullas.

Gullas is hoping that the positive outcome of this will be sustained and not just to be taken for granted and instead.

“Dili unta nato i-take for granted kaning atong mga discipline zones. Dili ni pareha sa imong ex nga pwede ra kang i-take for granted. Let us cooperate with our local police and follow our laws religiously,” added Gullas.

Gullas also reminded everyone that making the city peaceful and COVID-free is a shared responsibility and not only of the government.

“Let us be mindful that making our city peaceful and COVID-free is not just the work of our local police and city officials, but a shared responsibility for all of us,” ended Gullas. — GMR (FREEMAN)
