MANILA, Philippines – In line with the directive of President Rodrigo Duterte to transfer the conduct of all anti-drug operations to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), the Philippine National Police (PNP) has dissolved all of its drug enforcement units at all police stations across the country.
Some personnel of the drug enforcement units will now become detectives or police intelligence officers in their respective areas of jurisdiction to help in further preventing the spread of crimes.
However, the PNP said it will not dismantle its drug enforcement group (PDEG), but its functions will now be limited to drug-related intelligence gathering.
PDEG will transfer to PDEA the pending drug related cases it handles.
“All units are now directed to focus all operations on number 1 anti-criminality, internal security operations, anti-terrorism through our provisions and strategy in our enhanced managing police operations,” PNP PIO P/CSupt. Dionardo Carlos said.
The PNP also suspends all Oplan Tokhang and Oplan Double Barrel Operations.
Based on a memorandum order, the PNP is prohibited from conducting any operation plan related to illegal drugs.
However, the PNP insists it can still provide assistance in the government’s war on drugs.
All police stations will still receive complaints or information regarding illegal drug dens, pot sessions, and locations of shabu laboratories.
Cops can also participate in the operations of PDEA.
Based on the latest figures of the PNP, the police had conducted almost 80,000 drug-related operations from 1st of July in 2016 to August 29 of this year.
It has also arrested more than 100,000 drug personalities and killed almost 4,000 suspects in its anti-drug operations. – Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

Rookie team PDEA Drug Busters eases to the second round eliminations of the league of public servants, UNTV Cup.
This, as the DOJ Justice Boosters toppled the Ombudsman Graft Busters, 95-73 on Sunday’s triple header.
Based on the league’s point system, the DOJ, Ombudsman and DA Food Masters get eliminated from the league this season, while PDEA reaches the next round.
Meanwhile, Group A’s DOH Health Achievers, COA Enablers and BFP Firefighters also exit the games.
In the AFP-DOH hard court battle, the AFP Cavaliers defeated the DOH Health Achievers 92-71.
With this, the soldiers share the 5-1 win-loss standing with the Senate Defenders in Group A.
And in the GSIS-PNP match, the UNTV Cup crowd saw an impressive win by the GSIS Furies over defending champion PNP Responders 76-68.
GSIS Furies Head Coach Myk Saguiguit said, “Ang will nila, talagang trinabaho nila nang husto. Kasi hindi namin inisip na we’re in sa second round. Sabi ko i-solidify pa natin, maka-tsamba tayo against defending champion PNP.”
(They willed it. They really worked hard for it. We didn’t think that we’re going to the second round. I said to them, “We must solidify ][our performnace]. Who knows, we may actually beat the defending champion, PNP.)
This win catapults the Furies to the third spot in Group A with four games won and two games lost, surpassing the Responders which now has a 3-3 win-loss standing.
PNP Responders Head Coach Erik Samson, “Nahirapan kami. Especially hindi kami gaanong nakadepensa nang maayos doon sa mga one-on-one nila, sa atake nila, at maaga kami nag-penalty.”
(We had a hard time beating them. Especially when we failed to guard them closely on their one-on-one plays, attack plays. And we got into penalty situation early in the game.)
Rene Boy Banzali and James Patrick Abugan were hailed as the best players of the game after bucketing 54 combined points.

The fate of rookie team Department of Agriculture Food Masters and the PDEA Drug Busters lies on the outcome of the battle between the DOJ Justice Boosters and the Ombudsman Graft Busters on Sunday afternoon at the Olivarez Gymnasium in ParañaqueCity.
Should the Justice Boosters defeat the Graft Busters, there will be a triple-tie among the DOJ, PDEA and DA teams.
And based on the rules of the UNTV Cup point system, PDEA will advance to the next round while the DA will exit the league this season.
But if the Ombudsman beats the DOJ, the Department of Agriculture team will enter the next round based on the win over the other rule.
It should be noted that the DA team won against the PDEA team 104-100 last September 17.
Of the seven teams in Group B this season of the league of public servants, the Judiciary Magis, Malacañang-PSC Kamao and the NHA Builders all with 5 games won and 1 game lost will advance to the second round eliminations.
Meanwhile, the AFP Cavaliers is adamant to clutch its fifth win as the first round eliminations of the UNTV Cup Season 6 comes to an end on Sunday.
The two-time champion is set to take on the DOH Health Achievers in the third game.
The soldiers aim to level with the Senate Defenders which is on the top spot in Group A with a 5-1 win-loss standing.
Last Sunday’s neck-and-neck clash between the AFP and the PNP saw the soldiers triumph over the policemen, 100-92.
Under Group A, the BFP Firefighters, the DOH Health Achievers and the COA Enablers this season did not succeed to ease to the next round of the games. — Bernard Dadis | UNTV News & Rescue
