The DEA mission is to enforce the U.S. Controlled Substances Act and to bring to justice those persons and entities involved in the manufacturing and distribution of controlled substances and chemicals destined for illicit drug markets. The DEA Manila Country Office is responsible for the promotion of U.S. counter-drug policy and advises the U.S. Ambassador on drug related issues related to the Philippines.
DEA works together with Philippine law enforcement agencies, such as the Philippine National Police, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, and the National Bureau of Investigation, on significant drug investigations that have an international and regional impact.
Besides working with Philippine law enforcement agencies on drug investigations, DEA also conducts training for and provides infrastructure support to Philippine law enforcement agencies that conduct counter-drug operations.
