TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, October 31 (PIA) –Total crime volume in September this year decrease, as police chief Colonel Dennis Agustin and his men aggressively sought ways to make Bohol a peaceful place to live and do business with. 

The decrease, which crime statisticians at Camp Dagohoy posted at 59 cases, elate members of the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) who gathered October 31, in the afternoon, despite a declared half day holiday for government workers for the All saints and All Souls Day traditions. 

Police Senior Superintendent Agustin said crimes volume reported in August 2014 totaled 712 cases, but by September, crimes dropped to 653.

The downtrend, Col. Agustin points out, was also consistent with the downtrends statisticians noted for index and non-index crimes type in the last two months. 

In his power point presentation, Camp Francisco Dagohoy chief noted that index and non index crimes in September reached up to 412 and 241 which was still considerably low compared to August of this same year. 
Index and non-index crimes in August, according to the provincial police director showed 417 and 295, where a noted 5 cases down for index and as much as 54 cases less for non index crimes in September. 

For the crime types, only physical injuries found an increase while all other indexed crimes experienced stability or down trends. 

Theft, physical injury and robbery still remain top crimes in Bohol, according to the soft-spoken Col Agustin, who used to be an anti-organized crime task force chief in his past assignment. 

Theft comprises 38% of the crime pie, Physical injury, 38% and robbery at 18%, Camp Dagohoy reports. 

Theft decreased by 8 from 163 in August, physical injuries increased by 18 cases over August’s 129 and robberies decreased by two from 76 last month, Col. Agustin pointed out. 

The biggest and most notable change however that the top cop pointed out is the drastic decrease of carnapping in Bohol, which has been successfully trimmed down to single digits from double digits in the beginning months of the year. 

In fact, Col. Agustin hailed Tagbilaran City Chief, Major George Vale for significantly lowering carnapping cases from 67 in the beginning five months to 22, averaging 4 per month compared to 13.4 in the beginning five months. (RAC/PIABohol)
