NCRPO said this “sums up to a -1,082 or 13% decrease in the occurrence of index crimes and -2,261 or 7% decrease in the occurrence of non-index crimes in Metro Manila.”

NCRPO director Maj. Gen. Vicente Danao said the “success in the fight against all forms of criminality, illegal drugs and terrorism may be attributed to the strengthened partnership we have developed with [the] community.”

“Indeed, it played an indispensable role in providing necessary information for immediate resolution of offenses and their increased confidence made it easier for them to report right away when crimes are being committed in their locality. Hence the delivery of prompt police service the community deserves,” he said.

“I give back this success to my men for their unwavering dedication and commitment to duty and to the people of Metro Manila for their never ending trust and support,” he added.
