In his report to P/Director Guillermo Eleazar, head of National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), SPD Acting Director Sr. Supt. Eliseo Cruz said the simultaneous police operation aimed to step up their efforts in the campaign against drug personalities, most wanted persons and all forms of criminality, focusing on quality outputs over quantity.

Operatives also focused in serving the warrant of arrest to wanted persons who were involved in different criminal activities while conducting buy-bust operations against suspected drug pushers and arresting those found maintaining drug dens of using illegal drugs.
