Tale of 2 Decembers 2015 crimes cut in half by '16, says city police

TAGBILARAN CITY, January 13 (PIA)--Tagbilaran City Police capped December 2016 with a 57.81% crime solution efficiency while noting 51% less crimes in 2016 compared to the previous year. 

Over the accomplishment, City Mayor John Geesnel Yap could not hide his elation especially when the city official has marked 2017 as a boom year for Tagbilaran's business and investment promotions. 

A city with a low crime rate and a high crime solution efficiency as well as a warm business climate brought by low cost of living and a facilitated ease of doing business are among the well agreed criteria for new investments to come. 

In a report presented by Tagbilaran City Police Operations Chief SPO1 Celso Orapa to the City Peace and Order Council (CPOC) meeting at the Jjs Seafoods January 12, the city police only logged 64 crimes in December 2016 as compared to 130 in December 2015. 

Crime solution efficiency for the month in Tagbilaran City Police Station slightly improved this year too, as the city crimebusters could only muster a 54.61% last year, Orapa pointed out. 

Index crimes in 2015 reached 66%, as the month had a total of 87 index crime cases of the 130 crimes.
