MANILA, Philippines — President Duterte has appointed former Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) director Gilberto Cruz as a permanent member of the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB).

“As member of the DDB, he will form part of the inter-agency body in charge of creating policies and developing strategies to counter the drug problem,” Cuy said in a statement.

He said Cruz is a welcome addition to the DDB, with his background as a police officer.

“His experience as a police officer, leader and manager will be of great help to the agency,” said Cuy.
