Rappler talked to Director General Ronald dela Rosa, chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP).
It's been two weeks since Dela Rosa took the helm of the country's police force. Under his watch, the PNP has taken a more aggressive stance against the illegal drug trade, as shown by the rising death toll among drug suspects supposedly killed by policemen in the line of duty.
President Rodrigo Duterte himself set the tone for this campaign when he identified 5 police generals as alleged protectors of drug syndicates.
Critics of the Duterte administration say the war against drugs and criminality is being fostered by acts of vigilantism and violence. How will Dela Rosa strike a balance between Duterte's brand of change and adhering to due process?
