Tuba police chief conducts IEC to prevent drug resurgence

Mar 31, 2018

TUBA, BENGUET – To prevent the resurgence of drugs in the municipality, the chief of Tuba municipal police station Police Chief Inspector James Domansi said that they are continuously conducting information education campaign on illegal drugs.
Tuba was cleared from drug in July 2017. It is composed of 12 cleared barangays and one drug free village.
Acod said the war against illegal drugs is a continuous process and even with the declaration of their town as cleared municipality, they still need to remind their constituent especially young children about the danger effects of drugs. “It’s our duty to keep our community and the residents safe. And part of it is a commitment to help our citizens to have a better life by not allowing drugs to enter in the community,” Acod said.
To constantly remind the community, Tuba police office conducts a once a week IEC in every barangay, maximizing barangay assemblies as their avenue for the IEC. During the activity, Acod discusses the negative effects of illegal drugs to a person’s life, family and in the community including its legal impediments. School children are given leaflets and advised to report to their parent or teachers any suspicious act happening around them. They were also given tips on how to avoid being use as drug couriers.
Drug surrenderees in the municipality reached 169 and half of them were already done with their community based rehabilitation program. “We have 71 surrenderees who finished their rehabilitation. The others are also preparing to participate in the community based rehabilitations. And we’re happy to say that after eight months, we haven’t seen any resurgence of drugs and the municipality,” Acod stressed.
“As part of the 14-parameter set by the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB), all the surrenderees underwent bio-file and submitted their self not to commit the same mistake,” Acod added.
Among the 13 barangays, Camp 3 has the highest number of surrenderees while Taloy Norte has zero surrenderees. DIONISIO B. DENNIS JR. / ABN
