Fifteen policemen have been dismissed from duty after they tested positive to illegal drug use last week.
Eight of the fifteen are officials, while the remaining seven are officers.
Authorities said that the names of the officers involved were being withheld pending the results of a pre-charge evaluation.
Four of the 15 officers involved in the dismissal were arrested in a sting operation in Biñan City in early January of last year, three of the remaining 11 were arrested in a series of raids in Laguna.
The remaining officers were all caught in surprise drug tests in different regions of Cavite.
