Mabalacat Mayor Morales to new police chief: Solve city’s drug problem
Mabalacat City Mayor Marino “Boking” Morales has strictly directed his new police chief to work on the city’s perennial problems on illegal drugs and traffic congestion.
Morales told Supt. Jomar Basa to maximize the local police force’s resources to curb the rampant drug trafficking in the city.
Basa has replaced Supt. Nicolas Torre as the Mabalacat chief of police.
In a Sunstar article, Morales said investors and tourists pick places that possess relatively good peace and order.
Only last year, agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) raided a shabu den in Dau which even has cubicles where drug users may consume the shabu they bought.
Morales announced the city government has commissioned a contractor to install an initial 14 closed circuit televisions (CCTVs) in strategic places along the national highway.
The Sangguniang Panlungsod has appropriated P3.8 million for the project, which includes a command center to monitor the city’s main thoroughfare.
