Youths tapped in anti-crime drive
Cambay, director of the Baguio City Police Office, said about 400 students and out-of-school youths helped agents arrest 11 suspected drug dealers selling prohibited drugs in the various schools in the city.
“We will continue recruiting willing youth volunteers in the city’s 128 barangays. We will establish direct linkages on the ground to put in place our anti-crime strategies,” Cambay said.
The youths were recruited as volunteers and given specific tasks in the anti-crime campaign. The volunteers provide identities of drug dealers and names of their classmates and friends hooked on drugs and where they buy the illegal substance.
