Task force to review crisis
mgmt, anti-terrorism plans

The Joint Task Force on Security, codenamed Leon Kilat, of Negros Oriental will review and improve its structure and security plan following learning experiences from Thursday's seminar on terrorism and crisis management by the United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation.

In an interview after a whole-day seminar, Task Force Leon Kilat executive director Bimbo Miraflor said their group would look into the methods and the learning experiences shared by the FBI to determine what is applicable, can be adopted and innovated in the local scenario.

Miraflor said the task force would deliberate on ways to “fill in some gaps after assessing the roles and responsibilities of the JTF as far as the maintenance of peace and order.".
