"Full mobilization of the police" when Philippine prisoners celebrate Earth Hour

The close to 500 inmates of the Baguio City jail in the Philippenes "will join the world in the observance of “Earth Hour”, according to the Philippines Information Agency:  

While the world-wide switch-off is set for an hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., the prisoners plan to unplug an hour or two earlier to contribute two hours or more, as they did in the last three editions of the annual campaign.

Baguio City mayor Mauricio Domogan is performing a "ceremonial swith-off", but it appears that he is not fully convinced about all aspects of the celebration of darkness in the city jail:

Domogan also called on residents to adopt security and safety measures and for the full mobilization of the police, fire and other public office personnel to guarantee success of the program.
