LINGAYEN – The campaign against illegal drugs in Region I will continue in 2017, assured the Philippine National Police.
Police Regional Director Gregorio Pimentel said the ‘Double Barrel’, ‘Operation Tokhang’  and other peace an order schemes will be dealt with seriously. 
“The campaign against illegal drugs  is continuous. We are not sleeping on that matter. We are very serious,” Pimentel said in a media interview during  his visit to this Capital town  recently.
For those who have surrendered, Pimentel said their revelations will be reviewed in order to know from them those who are still in hiding.
“We  will still be knocking at their doors and convince them to surface and surrender for reformation and rehabilitation,” he added.
Without citing  statistics, Pimentel said  the number of barangays being cleared of drugs is increasing. Rehabilitation programs for those who surrendered are also in the process.
In Pangasinan, only the town of Sto. Tomas has been confirmed by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency to be drug-free even before the Operation: Double Barrel. 
The PNP director assured that the peace and order situation in Region I is in normal condition and that there is nothing to worry about. (VHS/PIA-Pangasinan)
