Gov. Agustin Perdices has asked the police to stop the proliferation of illegal drugs and illegal gambling in Negros Oriental. Perdices made the call during the ceremonies marking the assumption of Senior Supt. Rey Lyndon Lawas as the new police director for Negros Oriental last Wednesday.{{more}}

Perdices said he will support Lawas in his drive against illegal drugs and illegal gambling.

During the turnover ceremonies, Perdices signed an executive order creating Task Force Kasaligan, which will implement the drive against illegal drugs and gambling.

“There should be no room for failure in addressing these concerns,” the governor said.

Lawas, meanwhile, accepted the challenge of the Governor and said he will fight these two vices through a multi-sectoral approach which will involve barangays, schools and both government and nongovernment agencies.

Lawas, who is from Compostela, Cebu province, is married to Janine Flores-Lawas of Dumaguete, who heads the Land Transportation Office in Bais City. They have two children.

Lawas is a graduate of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1987 and had first served in Negros Oriental immediately after graduation as a young lieutenant in the then Philippine Constabulary’s Regional Special Action Force. (PNA)
