Workshop held to craft city’s 3-year anti-drugs program
by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

Members of the City Anti-Drug Abuse Council (Cadac) met last week with officials of 15 barangays for a workshop to formulate the city’s anti-illegal drugs campaign action plan for the next three years.

The event was spearheaded by the city’s Special Services Division in collaboration with the Department of the Interior and Local Government-Baguio.

DILG Baguio staff Joan Dumalsin said the barangays that participated in the workshop represented the top five with the most functional Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council (Badac) and bottom 10 barangays with the least functional Badac.

The workshop was also participated in by representatives from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-Baguio, Baguio City Police Office, City Social Welfare and Development Office, other concerned city government departments, faith-based organizations, and civil society organizations.

She said the participants were divided into groups and asked to detail what went wrong with and what went right in the city’s fight against illegal drugs and their suggestions to improve the city’s fights against illegal drugs.

Dumalsin said that among the problems identified were the lack of evidence-based information, alleged apathy of some barangay officials, and non-attendance of drug surrenders in rehab programs, among other things. 

The good practices include the simultaneous conduct of anti-illegal drugs operations, monitoring of transients and visitors in the barangays, and cooperation of the community, among others.

Dumalsin said the participants suggested for the provision of more CCTVs in the barangays; more budget for Badac activities; conduct of more information, education, and communication campaigns on illegal drugs; provision of livelihood opportunities for drug surrenderers; more trainings; and installation of street lights to discourage illegal-drug transactions.

She said that the inputs taken from the workshop will be collated and incorporated in the city’s anti-illegal drugs action plan for 2020 to 2022.

The creation of Badacs are mandated by Dangerous Drugs Board Board Resolution 3 s. 2017 to assist law enforcement agencies in the eradication and clearing operations of illegal drugs in their respective jurisdictions.
