FOR its active effort in the war against illegal drugs, the Fuente Osmeña Police Station will receive P1 million worth of equipment from the Cebu City Government.

They will be receiving additional radio units, flash lights, raincoats and rubber shoes, among others.
u201cIn terms of anti-illegal drugs, they have been coordinating with us and they’ve also made Cosap their partner in the anti-drug campaign. I’m very happy that the P1 million package was approved,” Lao said.
He said that, so far, out of 11 police stations in the city, only Station 2 or the Fuente Osmeña Police Station has been working in coordination with Cosap.
Sough for comment, Osmeña said the City will be responsive to the needs of those who are active in their efforts in the war against illegal drugs.
