Statement from DEA Special Agent in Charge John J. Bryfonski on the Success of Operation Pressure Point

DEC 03 -- “DEA was proud to serve as partners in Operation Pressure Point which has proven to be highly successful in reducing violent crime in Philadelphia. The threat posed by violent crime in the city, a portion of which is either directly or indirectly related to substance abuse and drug trafficking, is a steep challenge and calls for the concerted effort on the part of all law enforcement agencies, municipal, county, state and Federal, in order to sufficiently impact this problem.”

“The DEA, augmented by Philadelphia Police Officers working hand in hand with DEA agents every day, are working hard to disrupt and dismantle violent drug trafficking organizations in concert with Operation Pressure Point to make a difference and ultimately make the city a safe place to live, visit and do business.”
