Negros Occidental activates anti-illegal drugs task group

Bacolod City (17 February) -- Negros Occidental Provincial Office (NOPPO) has activated the Provincial Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group in order to address the pressing problem of illegal drugs and its menaces in the province.

Chief Inspector Rico Santotome, Jr. former chief of the Special Operations Task Force-AIDSOTG and president of Negros Association of Government Information Officers and Liaison (NAGIOL) will head the task group.

Former Chairman of Dangerous Drug Board Tito Sotto said there is no politician in Bacolod City listed in the watch list of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency when he was still the chairman.

Sotto said there are personalities in Bacolod and Iloilo who are in the watch list but, fortunately, they are not local officials.

NOPPO Director Senior Supt. Manuel Felix said that aside from the upcoming May 10, 2010 polls, NOPPO will also focus on its anti-criminality drive, particularly in the campaign against illegal drugs, loose firearms and illegal gambling. (PIA/cad) [top]
