PDEA purchases P90 million worth of HIGH END equipment for anti-drug ops

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) purchased P90 million worth of equipment to bolster their anti-illegal drug operations, according to a report by Ian Cruz on Balitanghali. PDEA Director General Aaron Aquino on Thursday presented 100 body cameras, 20 remote-controlled aircraft or drones, handheld radios, tactical helmets, reloading machines, laptops, and printers for use by the national headquarters and 17 regional offices. New vehicles and motorcycles were also purchased by the agency for use in anti-drug operations. PDEA plans to buy 200 more body cams with infrared capabilities for day and night use to document all of the operations they will carry out with the Philippine National Police. Aquino released a memorandum that mandates PDEA-issued body cam use for operatives, media, and barangay officials in any drug operation. However, the police has yet to obtain their own supply of body cams despite their prominent role in joint operations with PDEA.
