On August 30, the Cavite Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) held a meeting at the Cavite Provincial Capitol in Trece Martires City and discussed among members the increasing number of incidents on random drive-by shooting by two unidentified riders.
The circulating reports of these casual shooting incidents, particularly in Dasmariñas, Imus, and Bacoor, stirred fear and terror among the residents and civilians passing through the aforementioned areas.
Senior Superintendent Arthur Velasco Bisnar, Director of Cavite Police Provincial Office (PPO), stated that further investigation is being conducted. The progress of the search concerning the suspects will be divulged to the public as soon as they obtain the right information.
Cavite Governor Jesus Crispin”Boying” C. Remulla, head of the said council, guaranteed that the officials are going after the suspects. Persons of interest are held in police custody now, as per Remulla.
He assured that the police force is devoting their full attention to the case and are on the watch over the suspects’ next move.
The provincial office is also looking at implementing the “open face” helmet policy and imposing a speed limit on motorcycles. Remulla has tapped the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (Provincial Board) members to hasten the process of the approval of the ordinance on these two submitted proposals.
“The Sanggunian (Board) was left with the discretion to act on it,” he said.
First District Board Member Gilbert Villanueva Gandia, Committee on Transportation and Communications, expressed during the meeting that the two measures are under the second reading following a public hearing on last Tuesday afternoon.
Apart from the actions to be taken by the local government, the meeting also held a public consultation regarding the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) on Unified Vehicular Reduction System also known as Number Coding of Cavite.
