Police provide bibles to surrendered drug personalities

ALL processed drug pushers and users that surrendered will be given each a copy of the Bible by the Pangasinan Police Provincial Office (PPPO) to help strengthen their spirituality while undergoing rehabilitation programs.

P/Chief Insp. Demosthenes Magnaan, chief of PPPO’s Police Community Relations, said 17, 000 copies of the Bible delivered by The Word Riders (TWR) Philippines will be sent to district commanders and chiefs of police in Urdaneta City and in Lingayen town.

The distribution will be led by Lawyer Gerard Abeto Mosquera, deputy ombudsman for Luzon and president of TWR Philippines.

Magnaan told the “Pantongtongan Tayo” radio program of Philippine Information Agency (PIA) that strengthening of spirituality of the reformed drug personality is important because it will make them realize that no matter what their past was, there is hope for them.”

In Pangasinan, 16,974 drug personalities have so far surrendered based on records of the Provincial Anti-Illegal Drugs (PAID) as of December 2. (PIA-Pangasinan)
