Basketball tourney for drug surrenderers


LUCENA CITY, Quezon: Newly installed Quezon Police Director, Senior Supt Rhoderick Armamento led Sunday the launch of a basketball tournament in the town of Pagbilao for the drug surrenderers under the PNP’s Project Double Barrel.

Ten teams composed of 165 former drug personalities from different barangays will be playing in the tournament in the town’s covered court.

Armamento said this tournament is part of the PNP’s rehabilitation program to help the drug surrenders recover from their former vice. He also appealed to the players to never go back to peddling illegal drugs and commit themselves to reform their lives for their respective families.

Armamento, who replaced SSupt Antonio Yarra as Quezon Police Director on November 24 vowed to sustain Yarra’s initiatives to intensify the government’s campaign against illegal drugs and criminality.
