Fewer crimes reported in Central Luzon in the past 2 months
OLONGAPO CITY — The number of crimes reported in Central Luzon dropped by more than two percent in the last two months, police said.
In a report on Dec. 4, the Police Regional Office 3 (PRO3) said it recorded 527 crime incidents, particularly murder, homicide, robbery, theft, physical injury, motorcycle theft, car theft, and rape, from October to November this year.
PRO3 said the figure was 2.23 percent lower compared with the 663 crime incidents related to the so-called “eight focus crimes” tallied during the same period last year.
Brigadier General Cesar Pasiwen, police regional director, attributed the drop to their intensified anti-criminality operations and the cooperation of the communities. INQ
