Police: No ‘order of battle’
against drug personalities

The Philippine National Police in Negros Oriental has denied reports that it is maintaining an “order of battle” against suspected drug pushers and drug users in the province.

Provincial police director, Senior Supt. Rey Lyndon Lawas, issued the statement yesterday to clarify that the term “order of battle” is not being used by the PNP as it has a negative connotation.

Lawas’s statement comes on the heels of a media report that said that during a recent meeting with the Negros Oriental Drug Abuse and Prevention Council it was mentioned that a seminar for police personnel was in the offing to “update the order of battle” of the PNP, and monitor individuals and groups involved in drug trafficking.

Task force to secure
two state witnesses


Task Force Kasaligan is ensuring the safety and security of two drug suspects turned state witnesses after the recent successful apprehension of two big-time illegal drug suppliers in Negros Oriental.

NBI special agent and Task Force team leader Miguel Dungog said the two suspects turned state witness will be properly secured against any possible harm. 

Cassandra Corios, 18, and Farell Catan, 25, volunteered to give credible information to authorities that resulted in the arrest of the Cebu-based supplier Edgar Tan and Jessie Misamis from Canday-ong, Calindagan in Dumaguete City.

Use training skills wisely,
back to basics grads told


Police Regional Training Unit Director, Supt. Renato Dungan, challenged the 32 police personnel of Dauin police station to use wisely the knowledge they learned during the seven-day Back-to-Basics training recently.

Dauin PNP station members compose the first batch of graduates who completed the training in Negros Oriental and Central Visayas.

Dungan said he appreciates the strong support from the local government unit in strengthening the police force in the town. He saw the importance of strengthening the police force especially with the presence of foreign and local tourists.
