568 minors rescued

The Bacolod City Police Office with its 10 police stations has rescued 568 minors who violated the curfew for minors, from January 1 to 30, this year, Senior Supt. Francisco Ebreo, BCPO officer-in-charge, said yesterday.

The police with personnel from the Women and Children Protection Desks, conducted 192 operations last month.

The rescue of theminors is in implementation of the Bacolod City Ordinance 331, providing special protection for children during night time by imposing curfew for minors from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. the following morning.

However, Ebreosaid that the rescued minors are repeat offenders since there is no heavier penalty under the ordinance, andthey are only returned to their respective parents.

So even if the police conduct aseries of operations, the same minors still continue to roam the streets during nighttime, he said.

Ebreo suggested that the ordinance be amended, imposing a heavier penalty on repeat offenders.*SGG
