Rodrigo “Rigo” Duterte II saluted the safety and security cluster for the successful activation of the Culture of Security simulation exercise (simex) on Sunday.
He said simex is important among security forces for effective crime-prevention strategies and raising the bar on security standards.
“Ang nindot sa simex, ibutang nimo ang security forces sa scenarios na dili common sa ilaha ug makita kung unsa ka critical ang ilang pag respond ug performance sa isa ka situation,” he said.
He also praised the security forces for receiving nine out of 10 rating from the Public Safety and Security Command Center (PSSCC) and Task Force Davao.
“Kining rating nga nine nagpakita sa inyong kakugi ug paningkamot nga ma secure ang mga Dabawenyos sa tanang terrorist-related threats,” he said.
Task Force Davao (TF Davao) commander Col. Darren Comia and PSSCC head Angel Sumagaysay both gave a 9 out of 10 rating in terms of the security units’ promptness and execution of first-response directives.
The fourth simex that was conducted this year, however, unlike previous exercises, details to the nature of the quarter’s exercises including the scenario, location, date, and time were withheld from all security and safety units to fully test their readiness to respond to any possible act of terrorism in the city.
