MANILA, Philippines — Sarah Jaberina, an employee, believes that the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) intensified police operations in Metro Manila has contributed greatly in lowering crime rate in Metro Manila.

In 2016, her laptop was snatched on her way to work which left her traumatized.

“After I filed a report at the barangay, they immediately took action. And there are policemen roving in the area. I somehow feel secured,” Jaberina said.

Based on the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey, the percentage of those who were victimized by property crimes such as robbery, burglar, and car napping has declined to 3.1%.

Families with members who experienced common crimes such as physical violence decreased to 3.7%.

Compared to the figures in March 2017, families saying they fear unsafe streets in Metro Manila are lesser.

However, fear for safety in other areas of the country increased.

With regard to the number of drug addicts in National Capital Region, the rate declined to 11 points.

The survey was conducted through face-to-face interviews with 1,200 respondents nationwide from June 23 to 26.

Malacañang said crimes such as robberies and physical violence become lesser because of the government’s campaign against crimes and illegal drugs.

However, Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said though this is a positive result, the government has to do more to make the streets and communities all throughout the country permanently safe. – Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue
