MANILA, Philippines- Nakumpiska sa anti-narcotics operations nitong Enero ang mahigit P460 milyong halaga ng iligal na droga, ayon sa Philippine National Police (PNP) nitong Huwebes.
Tinawag ito ng PNP na “significant progress” mula sa 4,632 operations at 6,248 arrests sa unang buwan ng 2023.
“The impressive achievements highlight the effectiveness of the intelligence-driven approach to reducing supply, which places a strong emphasis on nonviolent means of making arrests while ensuring the safety of teams involved in violent encounters with armed suspects through proper equipment and training. This is the new face of our anti-illegal drugs campaign,” ayon kay PNP Chief General Azurin Jr.
“The centerpiece of this effort is the Recovery and Wellness Program, which is part of the Anti-Illegal Drugs Operations through Reinforcement and Education (ADORE), the final phase of the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) endgame strategy against drug abuse,” dagdag ng opisyal.
Base kay Azurin, nagresulta ang mga operasyon nitong nakaraang buwan sa pagkakasabat ng illegal drugs na may total street value na P460,106,164.49. RNT/SA
