A joint tree-planting project dubbed “Nalulong Noon, Makakalikasan Na Ngayon” was attended by drug surrenderers in Bgy. Maahas in Los Baños, Laguna.

Spearheaded by Supt. Vicente Cabatingan, OIC Los Baños Police Station, under the supervision of Senior Supt. Joel Pernito, acting Laguna police director, and with the support of Los Baños municipal government headed by Mayor Caezar Perez, the tree-planting activity was also attended by some 50 participants, including Bgy. Maahas Chairman Ferdinand Vargas, the Maahas Sangguniang Barangay and drug surrenderers.
This pre-rehabilitation activity is a relentless effort of the Laguna PNP through Project: Double Barrel which is expected to benefit the surrenderers and the community. Under the project, drug dependents will undergo tree-planting and community services for re-integration and values formation.
The Laguna PPO, in coordination with the different police stations and the provincial government of Laguna, shall take the lead in helping drug users undergo rehabilitation.
