The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) conducted an inspection of Iloilo City Hall yesterday, which turned up negative for the presence of illegal drugs.
“The inspection was conducted by three teams with K-9 dogs,” said acting Iloilo City Mayor Jose Espinosa III. “They inspected all floors of City Hall to ensure that we are really a drug-free workplace.”
Last week, Espinosa signed an executive order creating the “Drug-Free Workplace Policy,” which seeks to promote a drug-free work environment and mandates drug testing for employees.
It also called for surprise inspections of City Hall, barangay halls, and other government establishments./WDJ
