TAGBILARAN CITY, March 17, (PIA)--After months of slouch, crime volume in Bohol registered a slight uptrend of six more cases in February at 724 compared to the previous month which only had 718. 

Over the two months too, Bohol crime busters noted a 9 case increase in index crimes while non index crimes decreased by five, according to PCInspector Jeffrey Caballes, reporting for PSSUpt Dennis Agustin. 

But in all, Major Caballes reiterates that, unlike what it shows at face value, police pro-active operations significantly increased the crimes. 

He also pointed out that, in situations like proactive police, crimes may increase but it does not imply a disturbed society. 

In the same report, Camp Dagohoy statisticians pointed out that physical injury, robbery and theft still ranks the three most committed crimes in the police list. 
Physical injuries rank first with 40% of the crime pie at 170 cases, followed by theft at 33% or 143 cases while third is robbery at 64 cases getting 15% of the crime pie. 

Of the 170 physical injuries cases, Police major Caballes went on to show that 118 of these cases were vehicular accidents.

As PCInspector George Vale, City police chief ascribes the vehicular accidents to the proliferation of motorcycles which can easily be had.

Governor Edgar Chatto also pointed out that the smoother and better roads would lead into faster ride and thus, accident prone. 

Himself admitting he is probably the most travelled Boholano now, the governor also noted that he himself see many youngsters in the towns driving motorcycles, a d no one seems to mind them.

Apart from illegally driving without licenses and thus proper training on road safety, unlicensed drivers are one of the biggest reasons why physical injuries crime spiked, a PPOC report bared. (rac/PIABohol)
