Cash rewards await informants of illegal drugs, wanted persons

 The Iloilo Provincial Government through the Iloilo Provincial Police Office (IPPO) is giving out cash incentives for informants of illegal drugs and most wanted persons in the province.

Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. has allotted a certain amount of money as cash incentives to informants who would help the policemen to facilitating the arrest of most wanted criminals and persons engaged in illegal drug activities.

The governor, however, refused to divulge the exact amount for security purposes.

“Our PNP is doing well in the province. I assured them that they will get my full support especially in the implementation of all their programs,” he said.

IPPO Director Senior Supt. Cornelio Salinas said that this step would help a lot to their operations.

Salinas added that they are now strengthening their campaign dubbed as “Hunger Game” which aims to put behind bars all most wanted persons in the province.

Salinas said they are targeting to arrest all in the list of Top 10 Most Wanted Persons in the province so that justice will be served to the victims’ families.

The IPPO director is also encouraging the community especially the local officials to participate on their fight against illegal drugs and most wanted persons to reduce the province’s crime rate by 50 percent. IMT
