Pampanga Vice Governor Dennis ‘Delta’ Pineda praised the efforts of the purok chairmen in different municipalities and cities in helping with the eradication of illegal drugs in the province.
This was during the Year-end Assessment on the Anti-Illegal Drug Campaign in the Province in front of 3,794 purok chairmen Saturday morning at Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center.
Delta said that the job they’ve been doing for the past months bore significant results like the seizure of the mega shabu laboratory in Arayat and other big laboratories and the apprehension of drug personalities.
He also encouraged the purok chairmen to continue their job in reporting suspects involved in the proliferation of illegal drugs.
“I ask you to please continue our fight against illegal drugs and let us not be lenient even if we claimed significant achievements and accomplishments,” he said.
Delta added that the purok chairmen are the most capable point persons in getting information against illegal activities.
“You only have small jurisdiction and you can see those coming in and out of your territories. Be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to us so that we can take immediate action,” he added.
The purok chairmen received food packs and financial assistance after the program as Christmas bonus for their hardwork.
Also present during the assessment are board members Pol Balingit, Cherry Manalo, and Rosve Henson and Pampanga Police director Senior Superintendent Joel Consulta.
