Dir. Mario D. Ramos highlighted the challenges they face in combating illegal drugs.
“Ito po yung kahinaan namin, ang kakulangan ng tao sa PDEA di natin ma-rollout ang problema lalo na sa mga barangay, kaya nagrequest ako sa PNP na magkaroon ng weekly Anti Drug Management Operation. Sa PDEA, yung cascading ng action , di masyadong nagkakainitndhan, kaya ang pambansang pamunuan ay ipinatawag na ang mga regional directors at pinulong para maliwanagan tayo sa mga dapat na gawin, he said.
