Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Website

For thirty years, Republic Act 6425, otherwise known as the Dangerous Drugs Act of 1972, had been the backbone of the Philippine drug law enforcement system. Despite the efforts of various law enforcement agencies mandated to implement the law, the drug problem alarmingly escalated. The high profitability of the illegal drug trade, compounded by the then existing laws that imposed relatively light penalties to offenders, greatly contributed to the gravity of the problem.
Recognizing the need to further strengthen existing laws governing Philippine drug law enforcement system, former president signed Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, on June 7,2002 and it took effect on July 4, 2002. R.A. 9165 defines more concrete courses of action for the national anti-drug campaign and imposes heavier penalties to offenders.
The enactment of RA 9165 reorganized the Philippine drug law enforcement system. While the Dangerous Drug Board (DDB) remains as the policy-making body, it created the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency(PDEA) under the Office of the President. The new law also abolished the National Drug Law Enforcement and Prevention Coordinating Center, Philippine National Police Narcotics Group (PNP Nargrp), National Bureau of Investigation Narcotics Unit (NBI NU), and the Customs Narcotics Interdiction Office (CNIO). Personnelk of these abolished agencies were to continue to perform their tasks on detail service with the PDEA subject to a rigid screenting process.
The campaign to establish a Philippine equivalent to DARPA / DAPA / DSTA:

Don't get mad at China. GET EVEN. Join the movement to defy a Chinese "order".

I would personally thanks to DG CACDAC, for a very practical but systematic policy or guidelines in conducting an anti-drug operations whose focus are all those classified as drug group and others. The issue raised by a certain agent morales against DG CACDAC is not supported by facts and documents so that only the members of his family will believed him. However, the success of an operation whether it would be buy-bust or SW arresting big-time personalities is not a successful  accomplishment per se, but just a secondary accomplishment, Some agents have training s abroad and local but look at them they just stay in the office and handled no more than 2 cases or none, while it is true that trainings and seminars are tools for promotions but precisely it is not a guarantee of a precise, genuine,true and primary accomplishment. Indeed, arresting big-time pushers, like chinese, africans or filipinos only to found out that they are released just because the AO's could not convinced the prosecutors and the courts base on allegations,evidences and affidavits that they really committed a crime other reason is pay-offs. The true and primary accomplishment is when an agent handling his cases successfully convinced the court that there is a reasonable ground to believed base on documents and evidences to sentenced  the suspect for violations of RA 9165, thereby gaining the trust of the prosecutors,courts, other  law enforcement units, and the people in particular, would you agree with me that it is an   EXEMPLARY AND PRIMARY ACCOMPLISHMENT? however, it has been suggested that when  an agent successfully defended his affidavit during court battle, convincing the courts that there are merits and facts to render a SENTENCED against the suspect, at least 3 cases,...would these be a ground for promotions? I know that there are agents who are low morale because they were not some other way, these would be considered an option for them for promotion to work hard, study their cases handled, high morale and eagerness to enforce the law? I believed agents will never be swayed by case for sale, because this kind of system would  always be the basis of maintaining the  good name and integrity of every agents especially the PDEA.  KEEPING THE AGENTS HOPE AND HIGH-MORALE MUST BE CLEARLY MAINTAINED AND EMPHASIZED BECAUSE THEY ARE THE BACKBONE OF THE PHILIPPINE DRUG ENFORCEMENT AGENCY(PDEA).  God Bless Pdea and all the men and women, keeping their agency number one on the top:bravo:
