The Olongapo City government has intensified its campaign against curfew violators, vagabonds and other offenders to keep the youth away from crime and instill peace and order.

With the joint forces of the Parks and Plazas Management Office (PPMO), City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), Olongapo City Police Office (OCPO), and Office of Traffic Management and Public Safety (OTMPS), saturation drives are being conducted regularly in public places.

Primary areas of concern at present are the Rizal Triangle, Marikit Park, Volunteers’ Park and other recreational areas in the city.

In a recent drive, two (2) minors were caught in the act of smoking marijuana by police officers PO1 Christopher Viray, PO1 Jeffrey Gomez, and PO1 Ryan Sebarrotin, together with other two personnel from PPMO at the Rizal Triangle.

The two teenagers were immediately brought to the Olongapo City Center for Youth where they were made to undergo counseling sessions.

“Isa sa mga layunin ng pamahalaang lungsod na gawing ligtas at kaaya-aya ang mga pangunahing pasyalan para sa ating mamamayan at mga turista. Sa taong ito, bumaba ang mga kaso ng vagrancy dahil sa patuloy na saturation drive,” said PPMO head Jhobal Sebarrotin.

“No minors below eighteen (18) years old shall be allowed during curfew hours in the streets and public places such as bars, restaurants, playgrounds, parks, amusement centers, beaches and other similar establishments in the city, unless accompanied by their parents or adult guardians. Ito ay alinsunod sa ating City Ordinance No. 22,” remarked Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr.,“kaya’t sumunod tayo sa mga itinakdang curfew hours. Pinapayuhan ko rin ang mga magulang na gawin ang obligasyon sa mga anak para hindi sila mapahamak.”

  • Kailangan na maliwanag ang mga location na ito, at sa ganoon ma discourage silang mag-istambay.

  • These kids are bored to death. They are looking for happenings, any excitements, and they can't or not getting it at home. so they hang out outside...

    Youth Sports is one good suggestion.
