A TOTAL of 12 firearms were recovered and surrendered to the Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) through the enforcement of Oplan Boga in November.
Records obtained by SunStar from BCPO showed that five low-powered and homemade firearms were surrendered, while seven were recovered in police operations.
BCPO launched the "Oplan Kontra Boga," a campaign against unlicensed and loose firearms last November 6.
Police Stations 1 and 2 recovered one each of low-powered and one homemade firearms, while a low-powered firearm was surrendered to Police Station 3.
Police Station 4 recovered a low-powered firearm while four homemade firearms and a low-powered firearm were turned over to Police Station 5.
Police Station 8 recovered two homemade and one high-powered firearms.
The BCPO continuously encouraged the public to surrender their illegal firearms to the police station in their areas and to tell the authorities if they knew somebody who possesses the same.
