The National Capital Region Police Office under the helm of its Acting Regional Director, PBGEN VICENTE D DANAO JR invigorated its campaign against all forms of illegal gambling in Metro Manila. He has been strict in his anti-corruption effort sustaining the no-take policy from illegal drugs, illegal gambling, smuggling and unscrupulous businessmen and all other unlawful means.
In various occasions, he explicitly stated that he condemns the existence of illegal gambling as a widespread social menace and source of corruption, as it has become an influential factor in an individual’s disregard for the value of dignified work, perseverance and thrift.
