“Pagdating sa layunin natin na makamit ang kaligtasan at economic recovery, napakahalaga po ng peace and order situation ng isang lugar. Maipo-promote lang po natin ang safety kung tayo mismo ay pina-practice ito at magkakaroon lang po tayo ng business o investment activities kapag nasa tama ang sitwasyon ng kapayapaan at kaayusan sa isang lugar,” explained the City Mayor.
The City of San Fernando Police Station (CSFPS), according to Lieutenant Colonel John Clark, chief of police, conducted at least 60 operations where more than 130 individuals were arrested in the campaign against illegal drugs, illegal gambling, and loose firearms during the last quarter of the year.
From March to September 2020, during the implementation of community quarantines, CSFPS arrested at least 200 individuals in over 100 anti-drug operations.
Clark said the city police continue operations including the implementation of quarantine protocols; information, education, and communication campaign; establishment of police assistance desks in public places; and, conduct of foot, mobile, and motorcycle patrols.

CPOSCO chief Louie Clemente and Supervising Administrative Officer Joselito Ortaliz, Jr., in their presentation, noted that most of the violators were caught either “not wearing helmet,” “disregarding traffic sign,” or “driving without driver’s license.”
Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), for its part, shared that as of the current month, 10 barangays of San Fernando have been declared cleared from illegal drugs trade.
Of the 25 drug-affected barangays, 23 were identified as “moderately affected” while two were considered “seriously affected”.
