Crimes down by 32% compared to last year

TAGBILARAN CITY, BOhol, June 24, 2011, (PIA)—CRIMES in Bohol went down 32% this year compared to a similar period in 2010, police records show.

At the recent Provincial Peace and Order Meeting held at the San Roque National High School in Alburquerque town June 21, Bohol Police Director Constantino Barot cited May 2010 crime volume as reaching 1576, which was drastically reduced to 969 this year.

Camp Dagohoy credited to continuing decrease of crimes, which amounted to some 32 percent, to a program the local police is implementing which has been apparently effective against curbing criminalities and pro-actively deterring the commission of such, PSSupt. Barot shared.  

Bohol police leadership has implemented the Police Integrated Patrol System (PIPS) which has rallied community help and maximized intelligence sources while using the tips people provide to stop crimes.

Index crimes for the period last year reached 1153, which was reduced to 786 this year, according to Barot.   

For the non-index crimes, police sources noted 423 last year, a figure which is now down to 183.

In the last five months of this year, the police provincial chief said theft, robbery and car-napping still top police concerns.

Within the period, there has been 332 theft cases recorded accounting to some 42% of the crime volume, a chart presented during the meeting showed.

Rob cases totaled 193 cases and accounts to some 25% of the crime volume for the period.

While Bohol notes some 119 cases of physical injuries, Barot said the police are more concerned with car-napping where some 61 cases have been recorded.    

Theft happens when there is no force exerted to get things while robbery uses force upon things, Barot explained while reasoning out that police are totally helpless in watching every household to stop theft.

As to robbery, he engaged communities to continue reporting to authorities any presence of suspicious looking persons who could be just awaiting for the perfect opportunity to commit crimes.

He also said that Bohol car-napping cases only involve motorcycles which have been mostly caused by owners forgetting to take off the keys while parking. (Rey Anthony Chiu)
