Bago City implements "balik baril program"

Bacolod City (14 September) -- For the first day of the implementation of the Balik Baril program of Bago City Police Station, two local residents voluntarily surrendered a homemade shotgun and another rifle grenade in support of the local police station's anti-crime efforts.

Police Chief Inspector Rico Santotome Jr, spokesperson of the local Philippine National Police, said Mark Mateo,19 yrs. old, of Purok Riles in Barangay Ma-ao surrendered one homemade shotgun locally known as "pugsak" with four rounds of live ammunition to Ma-ao COMPAC in-charge Police Inspector Clifford Batadhay.

Later in the day, Hernane Espinosa, a farmer from Brgy. Bacong endorsed one rifle grenade to Police Officer 3 Angelo Geroche of the local PNP's Intelligence Section.

Santotome said that they are expecting more surrendered firearms from concerned residents and even force multipliers like local watchmen, before the year ends.

In 2006-07, Santotome initiated the surrender of more than 70 loose firearms from local residents in nearby Valladolid town that made the 4th District municipality relatively crime-free in as much as firearm-related incidents are concerned for two straight years.

Meanwhile, Negros Occidental PNP director, Police Senior Superintendent Manuel Felix commended the local police chief, Police Superintendent Melchor Coronel and his men for their initiative in implementing the gun amnesty program. (NOPPO/PIA/cad) [top]
