MANGALDAN – The police’s list of dangerous drug personalities was a consolidation of reports from various sectors, according to the chief of police (COP) here.
Superintendent Arnold Solomon said the village chiefs, this town’s COP, and the police provincial office (PPO) based in Lingayen town listed the users and peddlers of narcotics in a village.NARC- FREE VILLAGE. Police Superintendent Arnold Solomon (3rd from left), Mangaldan acting Chief of Police, together with Noel de Guzman who represented Mayor Bona Fe D. Parayno, and Barangay Anti-Drug Council (BADAC) Chairman Mario Bautista declare Barangay Macayug as Drug-Cleared Barangay in the municipality of Mangaldan. The activity was attended by barangay officials, Barangay Health Workers (BHW), Civilian Volunteer Organization/ Barangay Peacekeeping Action Team (CVOs/BPATs) and BADAC members.
“Consolidated validation, may mag pi-feed sa police, may mga listahan. Iyong barangay sa barangay bina-validate din po iyon. Tapos sa PNP bina-validate din. Then papunta uli sa provincial office ba-validate din,” Solomon said when he was asked if that a barangay chairman and councilmen could incriminate a suspect because he is a perceived political enemy.
Solomon said the local police and the intelligence of the PPO would revalidate the list of the village officials.
‘They (PPO) have their own intelligence operatives in the community,” he said, referring to the gathering of data by the intelligence personnel of the police provincial office.
Aside from the PPO, he said his policemen have their own intelligence operators.
He said there were cases that the provincial police office returned the list of the dangerous drug personalities by changing the designation of a user to pusher after revalidation.
In his July interview, Pangasinan’s PPO Director Senior Supt. Ronald Lee said the five stages of Double Barrel (Operation Tokhang of the Duterte Administration) include: collection and validation of information/list submitted by Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council; coordination with local government units, non-government organizations and other government agencies; house-to-house visitation; processing/documentation of drug personalities who surrender; and monitoring and evaluation.
“They (drug personalities) are now coming out, including those who were not initially included in the watch list but are already into drugs” he stressed.
