Tale of 2 Decembers 2015 crimes cut in half by '16, says city police

TAGBILARAN CITY, January 13 (PIA)--Tagbilaran City Police capped December 2016 with a 57.81% crime solution efficiency while noting 51% less crimes in 2016 compared to the previous year. 

Over the accomplishment, City Mayor John Geesnel Yap could not hide his elation especially when the city official has marked 2017 as a boom year for Tagbilaran's business and investment promotions. 

A city with a low crime rate and a high crime solution efficiency as well as a warm business climate brought by low cost of living and a facilitated ease of doing business are among the well agreed criteria for new investments to come. 

In a report presented by Tagbilaran City Police Operations Chief SPO1 Celso Orapa to the City Peace and Order Council (CPOC) meeting at the Jjs Seafoods January 12, the city police only logged 64 crimes in December 2016 as compared to 130 in December 2015. 

Crime solution efficiency for the month in Tagbilaran City Police Station slightly improved this year too, as the city crimebusters could only muster a 54.61% last year, Orapa pointed out. 

Index crimes in 2015 reached 66%, as the month had a total of 87 index crime cases of the 130 crimes. 

By 2016 however, City police blotters only managed some 47 index crime entries, earning a 73% index Crime solution efficiency. 

For non index crimes, in 2016, Tagbilaran had only 17 crimes compared to the 43 cases in December of 2015. 

Top crimes committed in 2016 however are theft at 46%, physical injuries at 36%, Carnapping at 8%, rape at 6% and robbery at 4%. 

Within the duration too, city police under PSupt. Nicomedes Olaivar accomplished 3 anti-drugs operations, arrested 7 with corresponding cased already filed, arrested 4 wanted persons and pegged 64 traffic violation apprehensions with 39 vehicles now on impound, according to SPO1 Orapa for PSupt Olaivar. 

Even then, Mayor Yap, during the same meeting announced the eventual transfer of the City Police station to their new building, which is now currently being built. 

This year too, the two Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams would be the city's additional crime busting ace, one which would be complimenting the 2 SWAT trained graduates it had Orapa reported too. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
