By Rosalita B. Manlangit

DAET, Camarines Norte, Oct. 1 (PIA) – The Provincial Advisory Council (PAC) of the Camarines Norte Police Provincial Office (CNPPO) urged policemen to fully implement the curfew among minors in the province through a passage of a resolution during the meeting held here recently.

PAC chairperson Atty. Evillo C. Pormento said that the Sanguniang Panlalawigan has already passed recently Provincial Ordinance No. 13-2015 “An ordinance imposing curfew hours among minors in the province of Camarines Norte”.

The ordinance states curfew hours among minors is 9:00 o’clock in the evening to 4:00 o’clock in the morning.

He said that this is a preventive law to protect the youth from becoming victims of rape, physical injury, drug trafficking and other illegal activities.

The Chairperson inquired on the compliance of the municipal police stations in enforcing the said provincial ordinance.

Atty. Pormento said that the ordinance was thoroughly studied and consulted through stakeholders. The COPs should ask help from the local government units (LGUs) and Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO).

The rescued minor should be brought to the barangay hall so that barangay personnel can return said minor to their parents, he said.

He said that the ordinance was thoroughly studied and consulted with the stakeholders and the COPs should ask help from the local government units through the MSWDO.

The council also agreed to send a letter to CNPPO Officer-in-Charge PSSupt. Harris Fama requesting for the full implementation of the said ordinance.

Police Superintendent Rhoderick B. Campo, deputy provincial director for operation on the other hand clarified that in their previous meeting with the chief of police of the different municipalities, a concern cropped up that as of present there is no facility to house rescued minors.

Meanwhile the PAC is also finalizing the guidelines on the Search for Best Policeman and Policewoman in the province as well as Best Municipal Police Station. (MAL/RBM-PIA5/Camarines Norte)
