Cop chiefs get quotas
as drug fight steps up
BY GILBERT BAYORAN

Police chiefs in Negros Occidental have been given a quota on the number of drug personalities they arrest in their areas.

Senior Supt. William Señoron, Negros Occidental police provincial director, explained yesterday that giving a quota to each police chief is just matter of gauging how they will address the drug problem in their areas.

While the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office ( NOCPPO) contributed a lot in the anti-drug campaign accomplishment of the Police Regional Office 18, Señoron said it is not a yardstick or measurement of their success in the fight against the drug menace.moremoremore
