CARRYING of backpacks in all venues of the Zamboanga Peninsula Athletic Association (ZPRAA) 2015 is not allowed, said a top police official.

This directive came after the police and military have readied security plan to ensure the peaceful and orderly conduct of the four-day ZPRAA 2015 in Pagadian City, the capital of Zamboanga del Sur.

Superintendent Glenn Dulawan, Pagadian City police chief, said the policemen and troops from the Army's 53rd Infantry Battalion will be deployed in the venues of the games, as well as in strategic areas of Pagadian City.


Dulawan said they will be reinforced by the Provincial Public Safety Company and policemen at the province's 26 municipalities.

The ZPRAA, which will see the participation of at least 5,000 athletic delegates, starts February 25 and ends February 28 in Zamboanga City.

The athletic delegates will come from the provinces of Zamboanga Sibugay, Zamboanga del Sur and Zamboanga del Norte and the cities of Dapitan, Dipolog, Isabela, Pagadian and Zamboanga.

Dulawan said they will also put up a police assistance center at the ZPRAA games' venue, as well as in the city proper.

He appealed to the public to cooperate as checkpoints will also be established in different parts of the city. (Bong Garcia)
