List of Narc addicts, pushers come from various sectors – Mangaldan COP

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

 MANGALDAN – The inclusion of a dangerous drug personality in the list of the police was a consolidation by reports from various entities, according to the chief of police (COP) here.
NARC FREE VILLAGE. Police Superintendent Arnold Solomon (3rd from left), Mangaldan acting Chief of Police, together with Mr Noel de Guzman (Mayor Bona Fe D. Parayno’s  representative) and Barangay Anti-Drug Council (BADAC) Chairman Mario Bautista declared Barangay Macayug as Drug-Cleared Barangay in the municipality of Mangaldan.
The activity was attended by Brgy Officials, Barangay Health Workers (BHW), Civilian Volunteer Organization/ Barangay Peacekeeping Action Team (CVOs/BPATs) and BADAC members.
Superintendent Arnold Solomon cited that the village chief, this town’s COP, and the police provincial office (PPO) based in Lingayen town listed who are the users and peddlers of narcotics in a village.
“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, a member of the Philippine National Police Academy’s Class of 2000, stressed when he was asked that a barangay chairman and his officials could incriminate a suspect because he is a perceived political enemy.
Solomon said the local police and the intelligence of the PPO would revalidate that inclusion of the suspect by village officials.
‘They (PPO) have their own intelligence operatives in the community,” by referring to the gathering of data by the intelligence personnel of the police provincial office.
Aside from the PPO, he cited his police here have their own intelligence operators.
He said there were cases that the provincial police office returned the list of the dangerous drug’s personality by changing the designation of a user to pusher after revalidation. 
In his July interview, Pangasinan’s PPO Director Senior Supt. Ronald Lee said that 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.
