“The war on drugs is on, and this time it is going to be more extensive, aggressive and well-coordinated, with built-in systems that guarantee full accountability and instill internal discipline among all personnel” said Philippine National Police chief Police Director General Ronald “Bato” M. Dela Rosa as the PNP activates PNP Drug Enforcement Group (PNP-DEG).
18 Regional Drug Enforcement Units (RDEU) and five (5) District Drug Enforcement Units (DDEU) in the National Capital Region police districts will be created, while Drug Enforcement Teams (DET) will be organized in the provincial, city and municipal police offices and stations.
PNP Drug Enforcement Group is replacing the defunct PNP Anti-illegal drugs group (PNP-AIDG).

The PNP DEG will be headed by Acting Director, PSSupt Graciano Mijares while all other positions in the PNP DEG are vacant and on the process of a rigid screening and complete background investigation to select only the best and most qualified to man the new unit only with personnel of unsullied service reputation, unblemished record, and a character beyond suspicion as a minimum requirement.
