Sun.Star Baguio - - FRONT PAGE - Jonathan Llanes

THE Baguio City Po­lice Of­fice [BCPO] is one with the Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice in its bid to in­ves­ti­gate (PNP) and solve cases in­volv­ing deaths in the city.

BCPO Di­rec­tor Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Ramil Sac­ulles ex­plained that "Re­gard­less of how it is named, the PNP will

con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate if ever there would be cases in the fu­ture in­volv­ing death of vic­tims who were re­port­edly into the il­le­gal drug ac­tiv­ity here in the city".

In the heels of the im­ple­men­ta­tion of "Oplan Dou­ble Bar­rel" the BCPO recorded 2,367 drug sur­ren­der­ers with 300 grad­u­at­ing from var­i­ous re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion pro­grams un­der the Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice and pri­vate stake­hold­ers.

To date, no case of al­leged Ex­tra Ju­di­cial Killing was recorded in the city of Baguio.

PNP Chief, Po­lice Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Ron­ald Dela Rosa who re­cently vis­ited the prov­ince gave promi­nence that the PNP wants to cap­ture “100 per­cent” of all sus­pects alive, stress­ing there is no use of wag­ing the war on drugs if life it­self is not val­ued.

PNP records showed that out of 6,129 homi­cide cases, 398 were re­solved by the po­lice from July 1, 2016 to Sept 15, 2017 or 6.49 per­cent were found to be drug-re­lated.

The BCPO en­cour­ages the pub­lic to con­tin­u­ously sup­port the PNP pro­gram on the war against il­le­gal drugs and pro­vide the po­lice with in­for­ma­tion on any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity through hot­lines in so­cial me­dia (Twitter @PNPBaguio or pcrb­bcpo@ya­ or the BCPO Tac­ti­cal Op­er­a­tion Cen­ter 442-1211, 442-7944 or through 0920422-2861.
