by A. Lumaque
Roxas City (5 February) -- An anti-drug rally was conducted by the Roxas City Police Station (RCPS) last February 1 along Ellieta Street here in line with its effort to reduce demand for prohibited drugs here.
"This will be continuous as we have already lined up barangays targeted for the anti-drug campaign," said RCPS Chief C/Inspector Leo Batiles.
The RCPS has been recently adjudged as the Best City Police Station in Western Visayas for 2007 during an awarding ceremony by the Police Regional Office (PRO) – 6 last January 29 in line with the Philippine National Police (PNP) anniversary celebration.
The award was also achieved by RCPS in 2006 which consequently won the national level as the best police station among component cities category.
The RCPS demand reduction campaign on illegal drug trade is in support to the Capiz Police Provincial Office's (CPPO) grassroots anti-drug campaign targeting every Capiceño family's support in the fight against drug menace.
The camapign is devoted to the demand reduction efforts to deny drug syndicates of their market by mobilizing parents to monitor their children and keep them away from harmful drugs.
In 2005, the CPPO has launched the program "Pamilya Ko Ayaw sa Droga" to empower families in the crusade against drugs by educating them on the ill effects of dangerous drugs and provide them with simple ways on how to combat drug abuse-related problems. (PIA) [top]
