By Venus L. Garcia

BUTUAN CITY, Feb. 28 (PIA) - The combined operatives of Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Caraga, Philippine National Police (PNP) and Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) Cabadbaran District Jail conducted a greyhound operation at the premises of Cabadbaran City District Jail.

The said jail facility has five dormitories accommodating a total of 268 persons deprived of liberty (PDLs).

In time with the greyhound operation, 13 BJMP personnel also underwent a drug test, wherein all yielded a negative result.

No illegal drugs and paraphernalia were also found during the surprise inspection.

Per BJMP-Caraga record, out of 12 jail facilities in the region nine have already been declared as drug-free by the oversight committee as of December 2018.

In view of the memorandum of agreement (MOA) between the PDEA and BJMP-Caraga, the intensified crackdown on illegal drugs and contrabands in jails continues in the region in order to maintain a drug-free jail facility. (VLG/PIA-Caraga)
