NCR ‘quad-intel force’ formed to run after rogue law enforcers
MANILA, Philippines — A National Capital Region (NCR) quad-intel force composed of law enforcement agencies was formed to clean its ranks and consolidate efforts in further sweeping illegal drugs in Metro Manila.
In a joint statement Friday, the NCR quad-intel force said it is composed of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) – Joint Task Force (JTF) and the NCR Police Office (NCRPO) whose regional director, Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, initiated to form the alliance.
Reports involving “ninja cops” or those involved in recycling or reselling of seized illegal drugs and “narcos in uniform” prompted the group to join efforts in cleaning their own ranks.
Despite its accomplishments, the quad-intel force said these were “always sidelined by reports of wrongdoings not only by the so-called ninja cops but also of what we describe as ‘narcos in uniform’ that include those in other law enforcement agencies.”
“This is the time to act and consolidate our efforts to deal a final big blow to the illegal drug syndicates in Metro Manila,” the quad-intel force said.
“We are all here to show a united agency in the campaign against illegal drugs by forming the first-ever formal alliance of the PDEA-NCR, NCRPO, NBI-NCR and the JTF-NCR to run after the scalawags in our rank, consolidate our intelligence and operational plans to shield Metro Manila from the entry of new drug supplies and at the same time, sweep all the illegal drugs that have already been distributed in the metropolis,” it added.
The quad-intel force noted it would have “no compromise and zero tolerance” against those who defy the government in its fight against illegal drugs. /jpv
