PIA Press Release

Crime elements in LT from other areas

by SC Aro

La Trinidad, Benguet (15 August) -- While this capital town has the highest crime incidence in the province, crime perpetrators are not really from the area according to police reports.

Mayor Artemio Galwan said this was revealed in a meeting of the Provincial Peace and Order Council held last week.

Galwan said these perpetrators are not permanent residents but are either transients or boarders who have criminal track record in other areas and do their illicit activities here, with the town absorbing the criminal statistics.

La Trinidad is a highly urbanizing town where the entry of people cannot be controlled according to Galwan.

Provincial Police Office Director Danilo Pelisco said majority of crimes occurred in this capital town as this is the province's center of commerce and trade considering that it is also the most populous compared to the other towns.

For the second quarter, La Trinidad registered the highest incidence with 39 or 66.10 percent of the total crime volume of this province.

Owners of boarding houses should be vigilant who their boarders are for security reasons as recommended during the council meeting according to Galwan.

Galwan said he will coordinate with the Sangguniang Bayan for the crafting of a resolution requiring boarding houses to register all their boarders. Should there be a problem on criminality, tracking of criminals will be facilitated, he added.

However, the measure should be coordinated with the Commission on Human Rights to ascertain that right to privacy will not be violated, he stressed.

Furthermore, Galwan said this town committed an amount of P50,000.00 to support the investigation of unsolved cases which will be allocated yearly for surveillance and investigation purposes. (PIA-Benguet) [top]
