Chief Su­per­in­ten­dent Gil­berto Cruz, re­gional di­rec­tor of Po­lice Re­gional Of­fice 8 (PRO 8), lauded the Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice (PNP) for a job well done fol­low­ing the suc­cess of Oplan Galu­gad con­ducted si­mul­ta­ne­ously in de­ten­tion cen­ters around the re­gion on Sept 9. It will be re­called the PNP and the Bu­reau of Jail Man­age­ment (BJMP) and Penol­ogy en­tered into a Mem­o­ran­dum of Agree­ment (MOA) re­gard­ing Oplan Galu­gad in con­so­nance with the di­rec­tive of Pres­i­dent Duterte to end the pro­lif­er­a­tion of il­le­gal drugs in the coun­try. “The op­er­a­tions were jointly con­ducted by the Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice and Philip­pine Drug En­force­ment Agency in close co­or­di­na­tion with the Heads/War­dens of the jail/pen­i­ten­tiary fa­cil­i­ties as well as Barangay Of­fi­cials and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the me­dia,” Cruz said. The op­er­a­tion did not yield any drug-re­lated items, how­ever, with po­lice gath­er­ing mostly bladed weapons and mo­bile phones. All con­fis­cated items were prop­erly doc­u­mented for proper dis­po­si­tion, Cruz said.
