Council expands village chiefs’ role

-A A +A

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

VILLAGE chiefs will have an expanded role in keeping peace and order in their respective areas after Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog and the Iloilo City Anti-Drug Abuse Council (Icadac) authorized them to enforce ordinances in anti-littering, anti-smoking, and in anti-illegal drug proliferation.

A village chief will be the one to issue a citation ticket to violators, while the barangay anti-drug abuse council (Badac) will lead the campaign against illegal drugs.

Mabilog will preside on December 6 a city peace and order council meeting to decide on plans to reorganize and strengthen the Icadac and Badac to become partners of the City Government in the drive against illegalities.

As reported by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), the city has 27 drug-affected barangays of illegal drugs and substances and the aim is to reduce, if not totally eliminate, illegal drug proliferation.

Mabilog also recommended to barangay officials the installation of their own closed circuit television cameras that will record all events in the villages.

A planning seminar was conducted recently for newly elected barangay officials by the barangay league and the drug bureau to equip barangay officials with knowledge on determining illegalities in their respective area.
