    Cebu City tops region in number of crimes



    By Elly T. Bolonos

    THE report that Cebu City has the most number of crimes in Central Visayas didn’t sit well with the Police Coordinating and Advisory Council (Pcac).
    According to the Police Regional Office (PRO) 7, there were 1,137 cases in the city in the past two months.
    Pcac presiding officer Eugene Elizalde met with Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) Director Melvin Ramon Buenafe yesterday and asked for an explanation.
    Lack of manpower
    Buenafe said the city has long been in the top spot having the biggest population in the region and with a significant increase in economic activities.
    It doesn’t help that the CCPO lacks manpower, he said. He said the CCPO has 944 police personnel now, compared to 1,200 personnel 10 years ago.
    This was not an excuse, though, he said, adding that crimes may occur anywhere if intention, capability or instrumentation and opportunity are present at any given time.
    Despite having the most numbers of crimes, Buenafe said among the police offices in the region, the CCPO reported the biggest drop in crime volume last year, compared to 2010.
    “We have the biggest decrease in crime volume last year, especially in index crime, but it wasn’t given due recognition,” he said.
    Clarification
    Elizalde clarified, though, he is satisfied with the performance of the CCPO, and he still has full trust and confidence on Buenafe.
    “I have nothing to complain about their performance, lain lang paminawon nga (it just doesn’t seem right that) we are at the top, so, I talked to Buenafe and asked him about it,” Elizalde said.
    The Pcac chairman reminded Buenafe to intensify their campaign against criminality, to minimize if not eliminate it.
    Buenafe said they need a comprehensive approach to deal with the problem and they need the cooperation of the community.
    He said they’ve already implemented the Police Integrated Patrol System by conducting checkpoints, choke points and mobile patrols, among others.
    He said they are focusing on street crimes and crimes committed with firearms and motorcycles.
    For the first quarter of year, the CCPO has confiscated 60 assorted firearms, compared to the 250 it confiscated for the whole of 2011, Buenafe said.

    1,137 cases of what exactly? Cases formally filed in court or cases reported by victims in police stations?

    To me, 1,137 seems like a small number to represent Cebu City's crime rate. Kadaghan pag tulis and snatching nga nahitabo that end up undocumented.

    police, wake up and try to solve as many cases as possible or better yet, try to have police visibility at all times.
