PDEA gets new office in Taguig City

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency has a new home in Taguig City, a development that reinforces the campaign against illegal drugs in the city and the rest of southern Metro Manila.

The local government of Taguig funded PDEAs’ first-ever satellite office in the National Capital Region. The brand-new, fully-furnished office was turned over to PDEA on Sept. 21.

“PDEA just has to report to the office to make it fully operational,” said Taguig Anti-Drug Abuse Council officer in charge Hilario Cruz.

PDEA will leave its old station in a building it shares with the Southern Police District in Brgy. Fort Bonifacio as it occupies the new Upper Bicutan building. The satellite office comes fully equipped with air conditioning units, computers and furniture.

“It’s been a top priority for the current city leadership and it aligns with the advocacy of President Duterte,” Cruz said.

The whole of PDEA’s southern jurisdiction—the cities of Taguig, Makati, Pasay, Muntinlupa, Las Piñas and Parañaque, plus the town of Pateros—will also benefit from drastically improved response time and the round-the-clock hotline.
