LAOAG CITY, Dec. 4  — Fifty-four police officers in the province have passed as Deputy Environment and Natural Resources Officers (DENROS) to help the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in protection, conservation and sustainable development of the province’s natural resources.
The police officers underwent a two-day orientation and seminar conducted by the Provincial DENR office.

The deputies were familiarized with their functions and duties as well as the extent of their authority. Procedures and necessary documents to be filed after an apprehension were also discussed.

Juan P. Delos Reyes Jr. Provincial Environment and Natural Resource Officer, said the deputies will help the DENR in its campaign against illegal loggers and violators of other environmental laws.

“To be deputized is to clothe the officers with authority to implement the law and apprehend the law-violators, Delos Reyes said even as he cautioned that, “however, abuse of this authority may lead to consequences” Delos Reyes added.

He also said that DENROs may also contribute to more effective information dissemination of governing laws on environment for the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals on ensuring environmental sustainability. (ANL/CDG-PIA 1 Ilocos Norte)
