Former Caloocan City Police Chief Senior Superintendent Chito Bersaluna insists that they are only doing their duty in implementing the anti-drug campaign of the Duterte Administration.

S/Supt. Bersaluna said that, as servants of the law, it is the responsibility of the police to arrest pushers and addicts, especially during operations.

S/Supt. Bersaluna also denied rumors that police units are having a contest of most number of pusher and users killed.

S/Supt. Bersaluna further added that it is natural for police to return fire if the suspect will fight back.

“Sa amin walang ganoon na may quota-quota tayo. Kung mapansin niyo, kami ay talagang, ang kampanya namin pinapaigting talag natin iyan.” S/Supt. Bersaluna said during an exclusive interview with DZRH.  “Basta may involvement ka sa drugs, huhulihin ka at saka kung meron ka, manlalaban ka, o may baril ka na tinutukan moa ng kapulisan natin ay talagang gaganti tayo.”
