April crimes decrease 16% as against March

TAGBILARAN CITY, May 24 (PIA)--Crimes in Bohol decreased 16% in April, a staving off of the crimes seen in both index and non index crimes, points out Camp Dagohoy spokesperson Police Superintendent Ricky de Lelis. 

Reporting in front of the Provincial Peace and Order Council in a meeting May 23, at the People's Mansion, de Lelis noted the 112 crimes less in April which had 610 crimes as against the 722 in March this year. 

Of the total crime volume however, Camp Dagohoy, showed that 29% of them are actually traffic related incidents. 

Homicide for example, Camp Dagohoy said all 6 incidents recorded are traffic related as with 72% of physical injuries as well as unmentioned damage to property due to traffic incidents. 
March had considerably more crimes with 459 non index crimes and 263 index crimes as compared to April with 393 non -index and 217 index crimes. 

In a comparative chart which Camp Dagohoy prepared to show the disparity in crime tally, de Lelis also showed that of the significant index crimes, only carnapping, which is technically motorcycle napping, saw an increase of 4 cases in April. 

The rest show noticeable decreases: theft went down 20 crime cases, robbery at 10 less cases, physical injuries at 11 cases less, murder at 2 less, rape at 6 less and homicide one case lesser. 

This would then translate to 46 cases of index crimes recorded in April or some 17% decrease from March, according to de Lelis. 

Theft went down from 138 in March to 118 in April, robbery from 42 to 32, physical injuries from 53 to 42, murder from 10 to 8, rape from 13 to 7 and homicide from 1 to zero, de Lelis, who reported for PSSupt Dennis Agustin shared. 

And like the previous PPOC police crime reports, Camp Dagohoy statisticians still impress the critical role of non index crimes in police crime solution efficiency. 

As to non-index crimes, in March, traffic related incidents reached 189, violation of special laws peaked at 169 and other non index crimes reached 101. 

The figures also slackened in April with traffic related incidents reaching 178, violations of special laws at 120 and other non index crimes at 95. 

Over all, Bohol still enjoys a 14% decrease in non index crimes or some 61 crime cases less. (rac/PIA7/BOhol)
