Barangay Drug-Clearing Program pushed

ALABEL, Sarangani (September 23, 2021) - Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Director General Wilkins Villanueva attends the Joint Provincial Peace and Order Council and Provincial Anti-Drug Abuse Council 3rd Quarter Meeting on September 20 at the Capitol gym. Villanueva discussed how drug abuse began in the country and the government’s efforts against it through the Barangay Drug-Clearing Program. “The program is anchored on the cooperation and support of the barangay in cleaning their own community from drug problem, and subsequently reaching a state of self-policing community wherein the barangays themselves deter drug personalities and illegal drug activities from entering or prevailing in the community,” Villanueva said. “At the end of the day, the final battle against illegal drugs will be fought right in front of every doorstep in the barangay,” he added.
