City cops earn high 69.41
crime solution efficiency
TAGBILARAN CITY, November 4 (PIA)--Tagbilaran City police performed better in October this year, compared to its accomplishments the corps presented a year ago.
Presenting to the multi-sectoral City Peace and Order Council meeting at the Jjs Seafoods Village, City police chief PSSupt Nicomedes Olaivar reported not just a reduced crime for the month compared to last year, he also bared a 69.41% crime solution efficiency in October 2016 as against only 47% in the same period last year.
In October last year, Tagbilaran City recorded 97 crimes, while this year, City police crime trackers have only 85 into their blotters.
Police Colonel Olaivar also said the 85 total crime volume for this year is comprised of 39 index and 46 non index crimes.
Last year, the figures were 73 index and 24 non-index crimes, Olaivar said.
Presenting the city crime situation to the multi-sectoral City Peace and Order Council (CPOC) led by Mayor John Geesnell Yap and presided by Vice Mayor Jose Antonio Veloso, Col. Olaivar bared that index crimes in Tagbilaran dipped in 2016.
By 2016, the police recorded 85 cases which also went down from 97.
Police however underlined the increase in non index crimes, with police showing an increase of 52% from 24 last year to 46 this year.
The relentless operations especially on the crackdown against drugs which have been tagged as the cause of most crimes, allowed City police to bring up the cases this year.
But, an increase in non-index crimes is never an indication of a peace and order issue, police officials said.
An increase of 22 cases as against last year only showed how police have become proactive against crimes by pressing on the implementation of special laws.
An issue however which police noted is the high incidence of theft and physical injuries in October.
Some 46% of the total crime volume in October is theft, while another 41% is physical injuries.
Both claimed 18 and 16 cases during the month.
As to the most crime infested district, Olaivar says their records showed Poblacion 2 leading with 12 cases while Cogon posts 10 cases during the month.
Poblacion 2 is known as Tagbilaran City's commercial and financial district. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
