The municipality of Roxas has recorded 107 drug surenderees, with 260 households visited under “Oplan Tokhang”, since the launch of Project Double Barrel in the area last July 2016. These figures are based on the records of the Roxas Municipal Police Station under the supervision of Chief of Police PCI Salvador Tabi.
A copy of the surrendered list was already forwarded to the Municipal Health Officer of Roxas to determine who will undergo rehabilitation or livelihood program training.
“Makiisa po tayo sa programa ng gobyerno. Sa mga hindi pa sumu-surrender ‘wag na sanang antayin na mapipilitan na po kami sa awtoridad na gawin ang mas nakakasakit na gawain sa kanila,” said PO3 Leah S. Cobilo, Public Information Officer of Roxas MPS.
Cobilo also said that they have recommended to PDEA some barangays in Roxas that can be declared as drug-free, data for which have already been submitted for processing.
