Robbery incidents in Bacolod City decreased by six incidents or 32 percent from January 1 to February 7, 2018, compared to the same period last year, the Bacolod City Police Office reported.
The BCPO recorded only 13 incidents in 2018, while there were 19 in 2017, Senior Supt. Francisco Ebreo, BCPO officer-in-charge, said yesterday.
Ebreo said issues have been raised over fear of rampant robbery incidents in Bacolod recently but statistics show otherwise.
However, even if there was a difference of six incidents, Ebreo said they are addressing the concerns and studying their causes and modus to prevent a possible surge in robbery cases.
The BCPO's main concerns are crimes against properties and crimes against persons, Ebreo said, adding that chiefs of police were told not to allow the lapses on why these crimes happened to repeat.
The Crime Clearance Efficiency of BCPO on robbery incidents also improved by 25 percent. CCE means that although the suspect was not arrested, he or she was identified and a case was filed in Court against him or her, Ebreo said.
“From 36.84 CCE last year, CCE for this year is 61.54 or 24.70 percent higher,” Ebreo said.
While the Crime Solution Efficiency improved by ninepercent.CSE means that at least one of the suspects was arrested and a case was filed in court, Ebreo said.
“From 36.84 CSE last year, CSE this year is 46.15 or 9.31 percent higher,” he added.*SGG
