For index crimes, there was a decrease of 51 incidents or 23.18% from 220 incidents of the 4th quarter of 2022 to 169 incidents for the first quarter of 2023. 12.80% . Decrease on  non-index crimes  and public safety index was also recorded  in the first three months of the year.

 Abra reflected the highest percentage of decrease on the distribution of crime volume by province while Apayao recorded the highest percentage of increase.

Mangili said the decrease of crime volume  was attributed to the continuous conduct of Enhanced Managing Police Operation and the vigorous conduct of Simultaneous Anti Criminality Law Enforcement Operation (SACLEO).
He explained that anti-criminality measures particularly the  continuous implementation of focused law enforcement operations and enhanced managing police operations are  intensified particularly in  areas where there are sudden increase of crime incidents.
He added that the continuing engagement of the  police force with the community members, stakeholders and other law enforcement agencies   is also one of the factors in the maintenance of peace and order in the region.
PRO-Cor Regional Director PBGen. David Peredo commended the police force for the maintaining a generally peaceful region. He also recognized   the good relationship between the police force and the community and called for both to continue working together to maintain a peaceful Cordillera. (JDP/RMC- PIA CAR)
