The Private Eye Rewards Committee is composed of members from the academe, non-government organizations, law enforcement, religious and business sectors, who deliberates and approves the granting of cash rewards to confidential informants.

“Operation Private Eye” is an incentivized program to embolden the citizenry to come out in the open and report illegal drug activities happening in their neighborhood with guarantees of anonymity, confidentiality and security,” Villanueva said.
