Lawless Elements are now using the social media to look for their would-be victims, thus an information campaign is being released by the PNP for the public to be aware of this new modus operandi of criminals.
Lamut Municipal Police Station led by PSI EDGAR LIWAYAN TAPO, OIC, warns the public on sharing personal information on social networking sites so as not to unwillingly entice criminals into abducting them for ransom. Furthermore the public is advised to limit or control the content of their post in social networking sites such as their wealth or material possessions, their time to time activities, and their travel plans and information.
The PNP vows to intensify its campaign against kidnapping and other organized crimes, whether it may be on the streets or through social media.
The public’s social responsibility and cooperation is very vital in preventing crimes in a community thus the PNP is asking the public to provide the police with relevant and timely information through social media.
