The cops also distributed materials, informing the residents about the local government's anti-illegal drugs campaign, curfew hours, anti-bullying and the police hotline 09155999759.

Flores urged the people to report crimes and other information to the town police.

"They may report, for example, if there are suspicious-looking individuals or if a crime is actually being committed," he said.

Also included in the information materials they distribute are some tips on how to prevent dengue fever and destroy the breeding grounds of dengue-carrying mosquitoes.

"We also help in the information drive of the Department of Health and the National Disaster and Risk Reduction and Management Council chaired by Secretary Delfin Lorenzana to prevent dengue," Flores said.

Meanwhile, Mayor Romulo Pecson is set to convene a task group, including the local police, that will implement the clearing of roads in the town.

"We already received the directive. We are just waiting for the official order from our mayor and other concerned departments of the national and local government to clear our roads from obstructions," Flores said.
