CLARIN, Bohol, January 26, 2012, (PIA)—Crime volume in Bohol in the last two years dropped by 12%, as police crime statistics record a maintained dipping trend in crimes in the last three years. 

Total crime volume in Bohol in 2011 totaled 2762, which further went down to 2429 in 2012, according to Bohol Police Director Constantino Barot. 

Reporting at the Provincial Peace and Order Council convened at the Bohol Island State University Conference Room in time for the Bohol HEAT Caravan January 21, PSSupt Barot also pointed out that crimes recorded in 2010 reached 4037. 

Camp Dagohoy statisticians also note that there is a 40% decrease in crimes from 2012 when compared to the 2010 records, a fact that superintendent Barot credits to 90% help from the public and only 10% police aggressive crime fighting. 

In 90% of the cases that are reported, you do not have a police officer seeing the crime as it happened, and yet we score high in crime solution efficiency, the tall and fit police officer pointed out. 

Bohol police also registered an 86% crime clearance efficiency (CCE) in December of 2012, after a 54% CCE in November of the same year. 

CCE happens when a suspect has been identified relative to a crime, but by a sort of a forged amicable settlement, the victim has shown disinterest in pursuing the case, Barot explained to council members. 

However, Barot hinted tough times for Bohol police especially with the 2013 midterm elections rushing. 

Now divided between crime fighting in maintaining peace and order in Bohol, as well as keeping orderly and peaceful conduct of election related activities, Bohol police chief hinted that amidst all the challenges, “sustaining the Police Integrated Patrol System poses an even greater challenge.” 

Already basking in successes in crime fighting which he ascribes to active help of the civil society, Barot added that encouragement of public vigilance will be of great help in preempting and preventing crimes. 

Hence, there is a need to constantly educate and solicit the support of the different stakeholders in the community, he stressed even as he believes that Bohol PPO will continue to accept the challenges and will continue to strive to sustain remarkable performance in policing thereby continually making Bohol a safe place to live, work, and do business.
