Quezon City — The Philippine National Police seized a total of over 3.7 Billion worth of illegal drugs during the first six months of the campaign against illegal drugs.
This is the result of the unremitting dedication and support of the PNP to the flagship program of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte embedded in the nationwide anti-illegal drugs campaign Oplan Double Barrel.
According to statistics from the PNP National Anti-Illegal Drug Monitoring Center (NAIDMC) from July 1, 2016 to January 12, 2017, all 18 Police Regional Offices recovered more or less 95,000 sachets of shabu where 8,581 sachets came from the National Capital Region Police Office.
On the other hand, Police Regional Office 3 recovered the most marijuana sachets (111,350 sachets) out of more or less 113,000 sachets of marijuana recovered nationwide.
Said figures were gathered by the NAIDMC from the 18 Police Regional Offices excluding the illegal drugs seized by the PNP Anti-Illegal Drugs Group (AIDG) and Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) which have separate reports through their relentless operations against illegal drugs.
The PNP is on its continuous campaign against illegal drugs and drug personalities supported by the Project Double Barrel Alpha, with more focus on the arrest and account of High Value Target Personalities involved in illegal drugs and progressing towards the Barangay Drug Clearing Strategy of the government.
