Bacolod City was peaceful and orderly in 2011 --BCPO

by Easter Anne D. Doza

BACOLOD CITY, Jan. 3 (PIA6) -- The Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) reported that the city enjoyed a stable peace and order situation in 2011.

This was disclosed by BCPO Director Col. Ricardor Dela Paz to members of the City Peace and Order Council during its regular meeting recently.

“We don’t have incidents involving the City PNP. We don’t have violent incidents reported for the last six years. No bank robberies in the city. No bombing perpetrated by any threat groups. Crime incidents in the city are more on those perpetuated by individuals or personalities based locally,” Dela Paz told members of the CPOC.

The local police noted a downward trend of criminality in the city which they attributed to effective and focused crime prevention programs of the BCPO and the reinvigorated Police Integrated Patrol System (PIPS).

A 52.73 percent decrease or 2,073 incidents was recorded for the total crime volume from January to November 2011 with only 1,858 incidents compared to 3,931 for the same period the previous year.

Index crime incidents from January to November 2011 only totaled 884 while there are 2,903 incidents for the same period the previous year or a drop of 71.17 percent.

In non-index crimes, from January to November this year, a total of 974 incidents were recorded while 1,028 incidents were recorded in the same period the previous year.

The local police from January to November 2011 reached a 50.66 percent crime solution efficiency compared to 16.08 percent in January to November 2010.

Aside from enforcing the laws and ordinances of the city, the BCPO was able to collect P2.2 million from enforcement of traffic laws, ordinances and other services from January to December 2011.

From police clearance, the BCPO was able to collect P3.2 million from January to December 2011.*(JCM/EAD-PIA6/Negros Occidental)
