PRO9 in coordination with the Regional Crime Laboratory Office 9 and Regional Special Training Unit 9 conducted a random drug testing to 376 PNP personnel.
Said number is composed of 279 newly-graduate PNP recruits who will be deployed for Field Training Program (FTP) to Zamboanga City, Dipolog City, and Pagadian City, 45 personnel who will act as FTP supervisors, 12 Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team personnel from RPSB9, 22 personnel who are in the CI drug list of the Regional Intelligence Division; and 14 RSTU9 personnel. The said random drug test is an advocacy program of Police Regional Office 9 to prevent its personnel from using prohibited drugs. RCLO9 was advised to furnish this PRO on the results of the drug tests. The PRO shouldered the expenses for the procurement of the drug test kits.
