January crimes down
from December 2014
TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, February 17 (PIA)—From the spending-intensive December to the leaner-January, crime volume incidence in Bohol decreases, perhaps due to lesser crime opportunity.
For Bohol police however, the decrease is an indication of a better accomplishment, with a huge portion of crimes listed as physical injuries, caused by alcohol intoxication than premeditation.
At the Provincial Peace and Order Council Meeting held February 17, 2015 at the People’s Mansion Conference Hall, Camp Dagohoy statisticians showed that total crime volume in December 2014 towered at 752 over January 2015’s 718.
The 34 less crimes in January 2015 comprises of 6 crimes increase in non-index crimes but an unprecedented 40 cases decrease in index crimes, points out Police Superintendent Nicomedes Olaivar.
On this, Supt Olaivar cites their intensified law enforcement operations as contributive of the increase of operational accomplishments, all of them resulted from consistent and aggressive campaign on illegal drugs through buy-bust operations and illegal possession of firearms through search-warrant-guided raids.
For crime solution efficiency, police also did better in December to January time frame, solving 383 of 426 cases and clearing 392 of 458 cases, Olaivar said.
Supt Olaivar rendered the report in lieu of his commander PSSupt. Dennis Agustin, who chose to sit on the sidelines of the meeting.
Top crimes for the month, according to Supt Olaivar, are physical injuries at 189 cases, followed by theft at 134 and robbery at 54.
And for physical injuries, Olayver showed that unlike what most would associate with physical injuries, mauling only constitutes 30 of the 189 cases for the month.
Vehicular accidents own up the biggest share of physical injuries cases at 127, a thing which police authorities credited to drunk-driving.
Despite all of these, Camp Dagohoy said “statistics reflect theft and physical injury remains to be the prevalent crimes in the distribution of index crimes.
Physical Injury as broken down shows that incidents in physical injuries are not mostly human inflicted crimes but due to human errors or traffic related accidents. (RAC/PIABohol)
