VILLASIS- Police officers of this town play basketball games with drug surrenderers as a way of preventing from going back to their vices.
“The games are also a means for the drug surrenderers not to feel that they are not outcasts and for them to integrate in their communities. While they were victims of illegal drugs, these surrenderers need acceptance and understanding. They should not be condemned because of their pasts,” Police Senior Inspector Rodrigo G. Lubiano Jr. says.
Lubiano, the deputy chief of police here, led police officers in a basketball exhibition game with the drug surrenderers of San Blas village here on April 26 as part of the culmination of barangay fiesta.
It was a game well played showing the camaraderie of the drug surrenderers with that of the police officers of Villasis Police Station.

” This kind of activity is fully supported by our Chief of Police (Brendon) Palisoc for the continuous monitoring of the drug surrenderers under Oplan Tokhang,” Lubiano said.
He said the first basketball exhibition with drug surrenderers was held in Lomboy village and there are  plans to have similar activities in all villages of the town.

Councilor Nicholi Louie Q. Sison, who witnessed the exhibition game, lauded the police officers for the said activity and congratulated the drug surrenderers for their active participation.
Meanwhile, the first graduation of the drug surrenderers who completed the moral recovery lessons sponsored by the Association of Christian Churches of Villasis (ACCV) was conducted last April 28 at the town’s covered public auditorium.
