Crime Rate in Manila Drops by 38% for the Past 12 Months Under Pres. Duterte


The Manila Police District (MPD) reported on Monday that the crime rate in the city of Manila has significantly dropped by 38 percent this year 2017. MPD Director Supt. Joel Carbonel said index crimes in the past 12 months decreased by 38.7 percent from a high of 5,474 cases in 2016 to only 3,393 in the current year.


MPD explainst that index crimes are crimes against persons and property such as murder, homicide, physical injury, rape, robbery, theft, and car theft/carjacking. Street crimes such as armed robbery, holdups, and snatching have also gone down.

The crime solution efficiency of MPDA during the same period improved from 54.8 percent in 2016 to 67.5 percent in 2017. This means that six to seven out of 10 crimes have been solved by the city police forces with the arrests of suspects and the filing of cases against them.

The achievement of the MPD under the administration of Pres. Duterte, is remarkable improvement considering that crime solution efficiency of the 4,600-strong police force averages only at 38.05 percent in 2014 to 2015, and 24.55 percent in 2013 to 2014.

Due to the accomplishment of the Manila Police District, the National Capital Regional Police Officer (NCRPO) chose MPD as this year's Best Police District in Metro Manila according to the statement released earlier by Manila Mayor Joseph "Erap" Estrada.
