Narcotics Director Ismael Aguon urged parents to watch over their children to ensure to keep them away from the dangers of drugs.

The case that led to the arrest of the nine men, according to courts documents, also involved underage girls allegedly using methamphetamine.
Aguon said members of the Narcotics Enforcement Agency (NEA) are also doing rounds of schools and the community to talk to about the impacts of illegal drugs.
He said the “drug war” is being fought on the frontline by continued investigations of alleged cases of drug trafficking but the police operatives have also started talking the issue of drugs to the community and schools.
He said the battle against drugs must involve all levels and all have a role to play in addressing the drug problems.
He said the talks to students are to urge “the young people to make informed decisions for themselves and not to try it.”
Aguon said the parents themselves have the responsibility to keep an eye on their children to ensure that they don’t indulge in illegal activities.
“You have the responsibility for your children and your family, you are closest to them, you should be the one to report if there is something happening or they are missing,” Aguon said.
Aguon urge parents to always keep an eye on their children to ensure they don’t indulge in illegal activities. [/r restrict]
