Hindi po natin maitatanggi na ang tagumpay na ito ay bunga ng pakikipagtulungan ng ating mga mamamayan sa pamamagitan ng pagbibigay impormasyon na sya naman nating agarang tinugunan. Nawa ay patuloy po nating mapalakas ang nagkakaisa nating layunin na wakasan ang pagkalat ng salot na droga sa ating komunidad.” Wika ni PMGEN DANAO JR.
