TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol June 22, 2012 (PIA) – While crime trends during the fiesta month of May have remained consistently high in the past years, Bohol’s recorded crimes of the month this year leveled off at 209; an all time low record for the first five months of 2012. 

Observers who noted the development quickly added that considering May as the fiesta month and the police enjoying a similar crime volume in April, police achievements in May is already a monumental success. 

In the previous year, crimes in Bohol have been noted to peak in May where the general festive air and countless opportunities for criminals just pop out anytime. 

At the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) Meeting in Sikatuna town Tuesday, Camp Dagohoy through Police Superintendent Jovito Atanacio representing PSSupt Constantino Barot also showed through a Powerpoint presentation that March of this year registered the highest crime volume at 288 cases. 

Since January of 2012, crime volume tallied all over Bohol continued a rising trend from 246 to 272 on the flowing month. 

The rising trend peaked in March and the rising crime volume alarmed police authorities who stepped up its Police Integrated Patrol System (PIPS) to arrest the wayward climb. 

Despite the success, Atanacio said theft and robbery still remain top crime types in Bohol, owning 47% and 26% of the crime pie. 

Compared to May of last year, the 209 is way below when authorities noted a 10 cased decline from 219 to 209. 

With only 103 cases solved of the 209 recorded crimes in the past month, Atanacio pointed out that Bohol police scored 40% crime solution efficiency, considering that crimes in Tagbilaran City remain alarmingly high. 
PSupt. Atanacio explained that since Tagbilaran City as a component city of Bohol, even with several owns showing perfect crime solution efficiencies, total crime solution efficiency in Bohol would be affected. 

For May, Tagbilaran City recorded 56 crimes, 51 of them index crimes and only 8 of the crimes considered solved. 

Even then, Camp Dagohoy authority said they are now keeping their focus on curbing crimes in the city with their cops in motorcycle. (30)
