Cops’ street presence
Pushed crimes down

CRIME fighting and deterrence has just become scientific in Bohol.

A police anti-crime program called the Police Integrated Patrol System (PIPS) intends to maximize the impacts of police pro-active presence despite their being thinly spread, briefly summarizes PSSupt Constantino Barot at the recent Kapihan sa PIA Thursday and aired live over DyTR.

Bohol police authorities under PSSUpt Barot are now coordinating efforts to spread an encompassing dragnet to get police officers on their toes against crimes and the opportunity to get one done.

Using a system of synchronized checkpoints importing analyzed data from crime statistics in Bohol the past, the PIPS checkpoints are set up in the very times of day when most crimes happen, in areas in Bohol where most crimes happen and on the days of the week or month earlier found to be when crimes usually occur, explains Barot earlier.

The setting up of mobile patrols and checkpoints are coordinated with adjoining towns to spread a fine-eyed net that keeps areas crime free or “lock down” areas so criminals can not get in or get out, police operations said.

This is not just to set up mandatory checkpoints, but also doubles our efforts to up foot patrols and increase police visibility as a crime deterrent.

According to the police provincial commander, the PIPS is intelligence driven activity where every officer manning his post at the checkpoint integrates data gathered from intelligence reports, criminal watchlists, broadcasts and other pro-active data from a wide net of intelligence assets including barangay based anti-crime teams.

The PIPS mobile checkpoints also puts forward the police’s Oplan Sita, anti drugs and illegal firearms, traffic laws enforcement and defensive driving, making it truly an integrated patrol system.

Camp Dagohoy based operations chief PSupt. Arcadio Jamora Jr. bared that the checkpoints have truly dented on the crime incidence in the past months.

Since November when PIPS was launched, police authorities have caused the impounding of about a thousand motorcycles traveling without plates, registrations, no-road worthy, another more than 500 four-wheeled vehicles with similar violations and erring drivers with expired or no licenses, Jamora read from his notes.

Police deputy for operations, PSinp. Ramoncillo Sawan, citing statistics from their weekly monitoring activities averred that indeed crimes went down.

Lowered crime incidence can also be credited to the simultaneously raids on safehouses, homes and known criminal dens, said Barot who starts to savor the successes of a good policing, (racPIABohol)
