CAMP MAJOR BADO DANGWA, La Trinidad, Benguet - As part of the PNP's intensified internal cleansing efforts, Police Regional Office Cordillera through the Regional Crime Laboratory Office (RCLO) conducted random drug tests on its personnel to weed out drug users among its ranks.

For this year, of the 4,279 personnel who were randomly tested, 4,225 were uniformed personnel while 54 are non-uniformed personnel.

On the other hand, 681 personnel of station, provincial, city, and regional Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) were mandatorily tested.

Drug tests were conducted with the following breakdown:

  • Regional Headquarters - 892
  • Abra PPO - 718
  • Apayao PPO - 241
  • Benguet PPO - 275
  • Ifugao PPO - 692

  • Mountain Province PPO - 303
  • Baguio City Police Office - 617

According to RCLO data, the result of drug tests conducted on PROCOR personnel turned out negative for the presence of illegal drugs.

Aside from the regular random drug testing, personnel vying for promotion and schooling were being subjected to drug tests. Personnel who will be tested positive on a drug test will be immediately filed with admin cases and subjected to summary dismissal procedures.
