“All of us have our own roles to play. Please help us,” he said while making rounds at the Loyola Memorial Park in Paranaque City with Paranaque Police Chief Col. Robin Sarmiento.

He first went to the Manila South Cemetery to inspect officers deployed there to provide area security. Bathan mentioned that his rounds are done to ensure the police personnel are doing their respective duties, also providing police visibility in the cemeteries.

During his inspection, the District Director talked to the visitors and reminded them of the things that should not be brought inside the cemetery. He said that he observed discipline with the visitors coming in and out falling in line, and prohibited items no longer being brought. Vendors have also their own area to sell.

He next went to the Manila Memorial Park, where there he reiterated that the SPD was ready for Undas. He also appealed to visitors not to leave their trash behind the cemetery premises. At 10:40 in the morning, the District Director went to the Libingan ng mga Bayani where he was accompanied by Taguig City Police Chief Alexander Santos.

He noted that while most were busy visiting the graves of their loved ones, the police were doing their best to guard and ensure their safety.
