THE Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office (NORPPO) expressed its desire for an ordinance that would impose a province-wide curfew on minors in the province, a police official said on Thursday. Senior Supt. Harris Fama, chief of NORPPO, gave this remark after at least 12 minors—11 males and one female—were taken into police custody after they were seen roaming in different parts of the province beyond 10 p.m. during the first week of the month. Fama said the minors were subsequently turned over to their respective parents or guardians. Fama said that they discovered during an inquiry with the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) that there is no existing provincial ordinance that imposes curfew among minors in the province of Negros Oriental. The police official said that he will request the SP to pass an ordinance, to be sponsored by a board member, for the passage of an ordinance for curfew of minors in the province.
