More than 500 volunteers took an oath to be part of the group to help eradicate illegal drugs in the City of Bogo. The “Drug Warriors” are volunteers made up of the 240 drug-related personalities who surrendered and local residents of the city’s 201 sitios and 29 barangays.
Bogo City Vice Mayor Maria Cielo “Mayel” Martinez said that this initiative is the fruit of the city’s efforts to institutionalize a well-crafted program to rehabilitate all the drug surrenderers in their locality. - CDN
These Drug Warriors will ensure that the anti-drug campaign of the city government will be enforced in the Barangay level. The city’s campaign against illegal drugs has been crafted by all the sectors in the city namely the government agencies, the city council, the religious sector, the LGUs, and the ones who surrendered themselves.
According to the records of the Philippine National Police (PNP), Bogo City has a total of 1,381 drug surrenderers. “For them to be able to participate in our rehabilitation programs, we required the surrenderers to undergo an assessment to categorize them according to the severity of their cases. This way,we can provide them the programs tailored to their needs,” Martinez said. - CDN
