By Norman B. Tamar

CAMP BONNY SERRANO, Masbate City, Dec. 17 (PNA) -- The Masbate Provincial Police Office (MPPO) here under Police Senior Supt. Prexy Dugas Tanggawohn has warned his men in the different offices and stations of the organization not to violate his strict order of muzzle-taping their service firearms.

Tanggawohn said Thursday that he initiated the move to prevent his men from indiscriminate firing during Christmas and New Year revelries.

He personally led the activity after the flag-raising ceremonies held on Monday at the MPPO headquarters and police stations in the 20 towns and one city of Masbate.

Tanggawohn said this is in compliance with the directive from higher headquarters to make sure that improper use of firearms will be avoided in the upcoming celebrations.

The activity also supports the MPPO campaign on zero casualty this Christmas and New Year holidays.

Tanggawohn said policemen who will be caught firing indiscriminately will face appropriate charges or dismissal from police service.

He also warned gun owners not to engage in indiscriminate firing to avoid untoward incidents. (PNA) LAP/FGS/NBT/cbd/eds
