Basco police implements peace and order measures on minors
Basco, Batanes (September 17) -- The Basco Police has implemented some strategies to curb the commitment of violations by minors.
The move will address repeated incidence of violations by minors who can't be accused or jailed on account of the Juvenile Justice Welfare Act of 2006 or RA 9344.
The Basco Police initiated the pro-peace measures on minors by prohibiting all stores to sell rugby to non-carpentry shop owners; shop teachers are also disallowed students projects that need the use of rugby; all amusement shop owners should dismiss employed minors before 10 p.m. so that they will not be caught by curfew on the way, and for all parents to headcount or check their minors in the house before 10 p.m.
The PNP ruling took effect September 3, 2007. However, later feedback reports that rugby bought or acquired before September 3 are allegedly used by minors in the farms on weekends or late afternoons as reported by farmers. (PIA Batanes/Cagayan) [top]
