The meet, initiated by the Pampanga provincial government in coordination with the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the City Government of San Fernando, was attended by officials of Barangays Dolores, San Jose, San Pedro, Sta. Lucia, San Nicolas and Sto. Nino.
In her remarks, Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda said the summit is part of the drug-clearing operations in the province. She urged the barangay officials to be fearless in protecting their respective areas against illegal drugs.
The governor then committed to provide the barangays with mobile patrol vehicles and motorcycles with sidecars for their mobility and surveillance needs.

Arturo Cacdac Jr., DILG Provincial Director Myrvi Fabia, PDEA Regional Director Jeoffrey Tacio and Center for Health Development (CHD) Regional Director Leonita Gorgolon.
