Quimno assured that in response to the continuing program of Mayor Ronald Aquino against illegal drugs, the city’s police force will still help continue to vigilantly assist in the anti-illegal drugs operations which is now under the management of the PDEA.

“The police is no longer allowed to conduct Oplan Tokhang. We are no longer permitted to go to barangays to make suspected drug users and/or pushers surrender,” Quimno said.

“However,” Quimno continued, “with of the continuing campaign of City Mayor Ronald P. Aquino against illegal drugs, the police, in assistance to the PDEA will still go to the barangays to talk it out with the community if only to convince, thus prevent suspected drug users and pushers from engaging with the prohibited substance again.” (CJ/ELEEN LIM)
