Some 68 members of the Valenzuela City Police Station underwent drug operation training in preparation for the “Valenzuela Ayaw sa Droga (VAD) Reloaded” and with Philippine National Police’s (PNP) “Oplan Double Barrel, Reloaded” programs.

Mayor Rex Gatchalian said the training came after Malacañang announced that it will resume its anti-drug campaign using the PNP after a month-long hiatus wherein the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) took over.

The mayor earlier held a dialogue with 700-plus Valenzuela cops and told them that the city government was committed to them. As such, he is providing them with everything they need in order to improve the performance of
their jobs.

He vowed to improve Police Community Precincts in every barangay by procuring new police mobile cars, police dogs, and guns.

Gatchalian also raised the allowances of all members of the city police force.

“From P1,000 per police to P2,000. Then we’re buying them 60 new police cars, long firearms, anti-drug dogs.
Recently, we also upgraded their blocks,” Gatchalian said.

“We are doing this in order to motivate them to do their jobs well, to keep moral high, and to give them no reason to engage in illegal activities — illegal gambling and drugs proctecting activities. Don’t give them reason,” he added.#
