Cops act vs. shift in NPA target

The Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office has intensified its intelligence operations following the reported shifting of the rebel group's activities in the province.

Reports from a very reliable source stated that the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army-National Democratic Front will shift its offensive attacks on selected targets in the province, particularly the bayanihan centers and municipal police stations, acting provincial director, Senior Supt. Harris Fama, said.

Fama together with Supt. Elmer Decena, commander of the Provincial Public Safety Company, yesterday visited selected police stations in southern Negros Oriental, including Dumaguete City, to inspect and assess the capability of the police force.
