QUEZON CITY — The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) on Wednesday (November 2) announced that the observance of this year’s All Saints Day and All Souls Day (Undas 2022) was generally peaceful in this city.

QCPD director Police Brigadier General Nicolas D Torre III made the announcement saying that the police have not recorded any Undas-related violence or incidents in Quezon City.

“Tuwing ginugunita ang Undas taun-taon, matinding preparasyon ang isinasagawa namin upang masiguro ang kaligtasan at seguridad ng bawat taong dadalaw sa kani-kanilang mga mahal sa buhay na namayapa na (Every year when we observe All Saints Day and All Souls Day, intensive preparations are done to make sure that every person who will visit their departed loved ones will be safe and secured),” Torre said.

“Ngayong UNDAS 2022, marami po tayong idineploy na kapulisan maging sa aming mga counterpart agencies sapagkat inasahan na namin ang pagdagsa ng mga tao lalung-lalo na ngayong bumaba ang Covid-19 alert restriction. Dahil sa magandang preparasyon at koordinasyon, naging payapa ang UNDAS 2022 at walang naitalang insidente patungkol dito (This year we deployed more police officers and our counterpart agencies also did the same thing because we expected that more people will go to the cemeteries now that we have a more lenient Covid-19 alert restriction. Because of good coordination and preparation, we observed Undas 2022 without any recorded incidents related to it),” he added.

Furthermore, the District Director commended the QCPD personnel for their dedication to their duty which eventually led to a peaceful and orderly Undas 2022. He also lauded the augmented personnel from NCRPO, Force Multipliers, Barangay Tanods, Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), other agencies as well as the QCitizens for their support and cooperation.

QCPD is part of Quezon City’s Task Force Undas Law and Order Cluster under Mayor Joy Belmonte.

Meanwhile, PBGEN Torre III said that the influx of passengers coming from different provinces who will return to Metro Manila after the Undas is already expected and therefore, policemen are still on guard, especially at places where most people converge. “Our Police Assistance Desks (PADs) remain in bus terminals and MRT/LRT stations in order to assist the public and to ensure their safety,” he added.
