Davao Ori­en­tal—Crime vol­ume in the prov­ince dropped by 42%, or a to­tal of 844 re­duc­tion from 2,001 cases in 2017 to 1,157 cases in 2018, the Davao Ori­en­tal Po­lice Provin­cial Of­fice (Doppo) re­ported on Tues­day, dur­ing the an­nual New Year’s Call on Gover­nor Nel­son Dayanghi­rang.

Doppo Provin­cial Di­rec­tor PSSUPT Mar­cial Mar­i­ano Mag­istrado said that the crime re­duc­tion is at­trib­uted to the “col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­forts ex­erted by Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice, Armed Forces of the Philip­pines, lo­cal gov­ern­ment units, stake­hold­ers, and the com­mu­nity.”

In­dex crime dropped from 559 to 314, while non-in­dex crime dropped from 1,442 to 843.

Crime sta­tis­tics in 2017, which recorded the high­est on phys­i­cal in­juries at 143 cases, de­creased to a to­tal of 89 cases. “The in­ten­si­fied ef­fort by this of­fice in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of En­hanced-Manag­ing Po­lice Op­er­a­tions as one of the strate­gic par­a­digms on crime pre­ven­tion and sup­pres­sion marks the sig­nif­i­cant de­crease of crimes com­pared to year 2017,” he added.

Mag­istrado said that while crime has de­creased sig­nif­i­cantly last year, they will fur­ther strengthen the en­force­ment of their plans and pro­grams. Some these are: im­ple­men­ta­tion of Oplan “Davao Ori­en­tal Kali­naw” at least once a month; con­tin­u­ous anti-il­le­gal drugs cam­paign; es­tab­lish­ment of 24/7 check­points in some ar­eas; among many oth­ers . /
