Pangasinan’s index crime rate down by 24% says PNP

LINGAYEN, Pangasinan, July 4 (PIA) – The Philippine National Police (PNP) in Pangasinan reported on Wednesday, July 3 that index crime rate in the province decreased by 24.40 percent from January 1 to June 30 this year compared to the same period recorded in 2018.

Acting Pangasinan Police Provincial Office (PPO) Director Colonel Redrico Maranan said the comparative data of index crime volume dropped to 849 in the first semester of 2019 from 1,123 total index crime volume recorded in the same period in 2018 with the decrease of 274 cases.

“The decrease of 24.40 percent or 274 cases in the total index crime volume is a good indication that the Pangasinan police is doing their job well,” Maranan said.

He said that the decrease of the index crimes can be attributed to the aggressive anti-criminality drive of PNP dubbed as “Oplan Balik Disiplina sa Kalsada” and the strict implementation on the campaign against illegal drugs, loose firearms and wanted persons all over the province to include the stern enforcement of special laws and other law enforcement initiatives.

“This is also attributed to the shared responsibility of the PNP and the active partnership and cooperation of the community to include other law enforcement agencies and local government units whom we serve and protect,” he added.

Index crimes that posted a decrease are as follows: murder-declined to 56 from 71; physical injury-down to 288 from 383; homicide-decreased to 18 from 24; rape-declined to 149 from 169; robbery-decreased to 77 from 105; theft-decreased to 227 from 310; carnapping-down to 30 from 54 cases; and cattle rustling-lowered to four from nine cases.
