The media serves as a bridge between law enforcement and the public, keeping the community informed about important developments, safety alerts, and crime prevention tips. Through accurate and timely reporting, the media helps raise awareness about issues affecting the community, encourages public participation in crime prevention initiatives, and fosters a sense of unity among the public.

The SDN PNP Provincial Director, together with the police force, tirelessly works to defend the people, especially the youth, from the devastating effects of drug abuse and trafficking in the province.

With SDN PNP’s intensified campaign against illegal drugs, the law enforcement efforts, intelligence gathering, and strategic buy-bust operations strive to disrupt drug networks, apprehend law offenders, and stem the flow of illegal drugs in Surigao del Norte.

SDN PNP’s role goes beyond just enforcement but also actively engages with the community, fostering partnerships and promoting awareness about the dangers of drugs with the support of our media. The collaboration with local media, stakeholders, supports rehabilitation efforts, and empowers residents to join the fight against drugs. (Mark James Lisondra)
