The conduct of the annual All Saints’ Day was generally peaceful in Bohol.
Various towns were on alert during the conduct of the holiday of honoring the dead.
Thousands flocked to various cemeteries on Wednesday to honor their dead.
As early as the 31st of October, people were already visiting the cemeteries as part of the annual sojourn.
The increased traffic to the cemeteries was an opportunity for the police in different towns to conduct community relations.
Different police stations posted on their respective social media accounts their activities which included the distribution of leaflets and other information materials.
The various police stations also formed help desks near the cemeteries so people can easily reach them when there is trouble.
It was also a form of police visibility to thwart any potential for criminal activity.
Before the holiday, brisk sales of flowers were seen.
Reports have it that the prices of flowers this year were higher than what they were last year.
