• 2,000 drug users surrender in southern Metro Manila


    A TOTAL of 2,066 confessed drug pushers and users have already surrendered in different police stations under the jurisdiction of Southern Police District (SPD), an official said Thursday.

    Superintendent Jenny Tecson, SPD spokesperson, said 1,780 of those who surrendered were users while 286 were pushers.

    Pasay City has the most number of surrenderers with 655 users and 82 pushers; followed by Muntinlupa, 337 and 57; Las Piñas, 302 and 54; Taguig, 328 and 26; Makati, 92 and 64; and Parañaque, 66 and three.

    They surrendered under “Oplan Tok-Hang” where policemen knock on the houses of suspected drug personalities and ask them to surrender.

    The number of houses that have been visited have reached 1,642, Tecson said.

    “Oplan Tok-Hang,” which is part of the police campaign against illegal drugs, was implemented the day Director General Roland “Bato” de la Rosa took his oath as chief of the Philippine National Police.
