160 Davao City Police Office (DCPO) personnel were subjected to a surprise drug test last week as part of the organization’s internal cleansing effort. “The initial result of the drug test showed all personnel subjected to the test are negative,” DCPO Spokesperson Sr. Inspector Ma. Teresita Gaspan said. Senior Supt. Alexander C. Tagum, the city police director, led the drug testing, along with the command staff, officers, station comanders and all drug enforcement unit members. “The aforesaid activity is in line with our advocacy on effective and faithful compliance on internal cleansing,” Ms. Gaspan said. In November last year, all 255 DCPO personnel were also tested for drug use and no one came out positive. — Carmencita A. Carillo
