8 sta­tions awarded for anti-drug op­er­a­tions

Sun.Star Cebu - - TOP STORIES -

The Cebu Pro­vin­cial Anti-Drug Abuse Of­fice (CPADAO) awarded incentives to op­er­a­tives of the po­lice sta­tions of two cities and six towns for their anti-drug op­er­a­tions last year.

The CPADAO gave fi­nan­cial re­wards to op­er­a­tives of the po­lice sta­tions of Danao City, City of Naga, Gi­nati­lan, San Fer­nando, San Remi­gio, Pi­na­munga­jan, Balam­ban, and Sam­boan of the Cebu Pro­vin­cial Po­lice Of­fice (CPPO).

“There was a res­o­lu­tion from the Sang­gu­ni­ang Pan­lalaw­igan for our per­son­nel’s ac­com­plish­ment. It gives high morale be­cause there are cash incentives for the pre­vi­ous op­er­a­tions,” CPPO Di­rec­tor Edgar Okubo said.

He said there is still a sec­ond batch to be awarded by the CPADAO.

Okubo said they are mon­i­tor­ing the po­lice sta­tions in the prov­ince who didn’t have any ac­com­plish­ment in anti-drug op­er­a­tions.

“If they have barangays that were de­clared drug-free then it may be the cause that they have zero con­fis­ca­tion. If not, then there is some­thing wrong with the chief of po­lice,” Okubo said.

One of the chiefs who were awarded was Chief Insp. Ger­ard Pe­lare, the for­mer chief of po­lice of the Danao Po­lice Sta­tion.

Pe­lare said that the cash incentives boosted his morale and vowed to in­ten­sify anti-drug op­er­a­tions.

“The fi­nan­cial in­cen­tive is just a bonus. Even with­out the money, we will still do our duty in the erad­i­ca­tion of il­le­gal drugs,” Pe­lare said.

The CPADAO gave P630,000 to the anti-drug op­er­a­tives.

Awarded were the po­lice sta­tions of Danao City, City of Naga, Gi­nati­lan, San Fer­nando, San Remi­gio, Pi­na­munga­jan, Balam­ban, and Sam­boan.
