PDEA taps Guardians, SK, barangyas in anti-illegal drug campaign

By Rose Palacio and R Suarez

Davao City (28 June) -- Police superintendent Jessie Estrada, acting chief of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said the government has tapped the Guardians, Kabataan associations and barangay leaders to further intensify the war against illegal drugs in the city.

In his message delivered Tuesday (June 26) during the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Drug Trafficking held at Rizal Park, P/Supt Estrada stressed the need to beef the security capabilities and widen the information drive to keep alive the war against prohibited drugs.

The International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Drug Trafficking is being celebrated June 26-29 with this year's theme as: "Do Drugs Control Your Life? Your Community, No Place for Drugs."

Estrada cited Mayor Duterte's sustained campaign against prohibited drugs which has prevented drug lords from operating in the city.

"PDEA and law enforcers as ordered by Mayor Duterte are acting on tips made by local residents and has confiscated numerous illegal drugs from drug pushers," Estrada said.

"We are soliciting the involvement of everyone, because this campaign is for the benefit of everybody. We don't want our children to be victims of illegal drugs as lawless elements are out there to exploit our kids and destroy their future he," added.

Estrada said barangay leaders are being mobilized to actively join in the campaign against illegal drugs and have established a composite team tasked to stop drug trafficking.

Various groups of Guardians have expressed their support in the campaign against illegal drugs.

Guardian leaders who expressed support include: George Asi, president of Community Guardians; Joselito Brioses, president, Roadrunner Motorcycle Riders club association; and Jhic Hocom of Guardians Int'l. (PDEA/ PIA XI) [top]
