posted Oct 14, 2014, 8:12 AM by Barangay Tortugas
The Provincial and the City government agencies are now addressing the worsening problems of drugs in our society today more than ever.

Last June 27, 2014 some members of our BPATs and Barangay Council attended a symposium in order to have a better knowledge on how to counter the influences and in keeping young people from using these harmful drugs. According to the educator, the family has a major role in conveying the risks of drug use to the youth in a way they can accept and understand. Parents should spend quality time with their children. They should speak to their children in plain language, that the persons offering to sell them joints and pills are not going to fill them in on the risks before they sell the drugs.

The educator also spoke about the significance of the Tanods and BPATs, the barangay officials and the general residents in combating this problem. Presently, members of our baragay police, the Tanods and BPATs, are now being cautious. Some personalities are placed under surveillance who are likely to be engaged and involved in drugs. They are placed in the watch list and are turned over to the Police Authority.
