CRIME DIPS AS PNP PRESSES ANTI-DRUG DRIVE
The Philippine National Police has noted a significant downtrend in crime volume over the last six months of year 2016.
Consistent with earlier pronouncements by PNP Chief, Director General Ronald M Dela Rosa of an observed decline in index crime incidents as a direct effect of aggressive anti-drug operations, PNP Director for Operations, Chief Superintendent Camilo Pancratius Cascolan expressed optimism that the crime volume will continue to simmer as the PNP intensifies police operations against drug-related criminal activities in the succeeding months.
From a high of 52,950 registered in January 2016, the Total Crime Volume steadily dipped by 13% through the 1st and 2nd Quarters of the year, down to only 46,060 crime incidents in June 2016.
In the PNP’s assessment, Cascolan said, the ongoing 2-pronged national anti-drug campaign under “Project Double Barrel” is expected to further boost the overall anti-crime effort, citing the correlation of drug use to other forms of index crime involving crimes against persons and crimes against property.
Over the last 21 days since Project Double Barrel was implemented in July 1, 2016, the PNP has recorded a national total of 3,213 arrested drug personalities during separate police operations by local and national PNP Units.
As of 6:00AM of July 22, a total of 239 drug suspects were slain in police operations.
Under Project “Tokhang” or house visitations on residences of suspected drug personalities, a total of 120,038 voluntarily yielded to authorities, among them, 112,902 drug users and, 7,107 pushers.
They are now the subject of further government intervention by concerned agencies. (PNP-PIO)
