Drugs campaign intensified
for Holy Week, summer
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW
The Philippine National Police in Negros Oriental is intensifying its anti-illegal drugs operations in anticipation of a rise in the demand for them during the Holy Week and the summer months.
Police Insp. Ryan Jay Orapa, head of the Provincial Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group, said yesterday that OIC provincial police director, Senior Supt. Mariano Natuel Jr., has issued a directive to step up police operations during the Holy Week when the population is expected to bloat.
He said the police anticipate a bigger demand for illegal drugs, particularly shabu, usually during the summer break, when various activities, parties and similar events are lined up.
