In fostering a more stable and peaceful environment through the campaign against loose firearms, the Surigao del Norte local police stations received and recorded three surrenders and one recovery of loose firearms from residents of the province yesterday, June 28.

POLICE COLONEL LAUDEMER M. LAUDE, the Provincial Director, acknowledged the 27-year-old construction worker from San Benito, the 31-year-old single, unemployed farmer from Gigaquit, the 28-year-old married farmer from Pilar, and a concerned citizen from Alegria, all from Surigao del Norte, for their willingness to voluntarily surrender their loose firearms to the local police units as part of our campaign.

The police authorities of Alegria, Pilar, and San Benito received two units of improvised shotguns locally known as “Sumpak” and one unit of a caliber 38 revolver without ammunition and with a defaced serial number. One unit of the Caliber 357 revolver without a serial number was recovered in Gigaquit town.

“SDN PNP’s campaign against loose firearms promotes public safety, prevents the illicit trafficking of illegal weapons, and reduces accidental injuries and deaths caused by unregistered guns. Our efforts will continue to contribute to peacebuilding in the province,” PD Laude said.

The surrendered and recovered firearms are now under the custody of the respective municipal police station for proper disposition. (Mark James Lisondra)
