Sen. Marcos Orders More Police Visibility Within School Zones
Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Friday asked for an increase of police patrols in university belts and school zones to keep them away from illegal drugs. Marcos made the call after the Philippine National Police (PNP) admitted last month that members of the notorious Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel has started "shabu" (methamphetamine) operations in the country. Marcos said the number of police personnel patrolling the streets surrounding university areas should be doubled. Marcos, the son of the late Pres. Marcos said a special training should also be given to policemen deployed to man the streets on how to spot drug pushers. "There is a need to increase policemen patrolling university and school zones because of this alarming information. With the discovery of the entry of the Sinaloa drug cartel, we have a reason to believe that selling of 'shabu' and other illicit drugs in these areas will rise. They roam near universities and schools acting normally but operating discreetly. Our operatives should be taught to identify them in order to arrest them immediately." Sen. Marcos Jr. said.
