THE TASK Force Davao (TFD) remains vigilant at border checkpoints following recent drug busts.

In an interview with the Davao City Disaster Radio on Wednesday, TFD commander Col Darren Comia highlighted the effectiveness of stricter inspections.

“Strict border controls led to the interception of significant amounts of illegal drugs and firearms at Davao City entry points last week,” Comia said.

“We continue to strengthen city security in close coordination with the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) and other law enforcement agencies,” he added.

On May 29, 2024, a joint operation by TFD and DCPO seized drugs at the Lacson checkpoint in Calinan District.

Comia confirmed that charges were filed against the suspect. He commended both agencies for preventing the contraband from entering the city.

Beyond checkpoints, TFD promotes a “culture of security” through anti-terrorism forums for various groups. They’re also finalizing a security plan for the upcoming Duaw Dabaw festivities.
