PARAnAQUE CITY, Sept. 16 (PIA) -- The City Government of Taguig has deployed a 1000-person team to assist law enforcers in ensuring the proper implementation of the city's new normal ordinance.
In a statement released today on the I Love Taguig's Facebook page, City Mayor Lino Cayetano said the "Tapang Malasakit Disiplina" Team will continue to pursue violators of health and safety protocols as it extends assistance to the Philippine National Police in enforcing them in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
The city government earlier deployed the 'Tapang Malasakit Disiplina' Team to help the police arrest sixteen individuals for violating quarantine protocols and drinking in public in Barangay Lower Bicutan on Saturday.
"The City Government of Taguig would like to congratulate COVID Shield Task Force Commander Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar for the arrest by his men, together with the Taguig police led by Col. Celso Rodriguez, of these individuals who were found in violation of City Ordinance No. 27-89 that prohibits drinking in public places," Cayetano said.
"Although the city's comprehensive approach is centered on compassion and education, partnering with individuals and institutions to fight the virus, the city continues to pursue cases against individuals and establishments that are not cooperating," he added.
To recall, Taguig remains among the cities with the lowest active cases in Metro Manila because of its aggressive approach in implementing rules and regulations. (PIA-NCR)
