Abstract

Oplan Tokhang which was first developed in Davao City Police Office (DCPO) by then Police City Director Police Senior Supt Ronald Dela Rosa was intended to speed up drug-problem solution by visiting houses of the illegal drug personalities and asking them to stop the illicit acts. The system requires that barangay captains will be at the forefront of combating the illegal drugs by submitting a list of their residents who are into drugs. The police intelligence units will verify the list to validate whether the names in the list are really into drugs.

Results of the study reveal that OPLAN TOKHANG was able to deliver impressive results in the first three months of implementation of the illegal drugs operation, from July to September 2016. As a whole, infestation rate of the region was posted at 10.76, by province, the highest rate was observed in Davao del Sur while the least was in Davao City.
