The Puerto Princesa City Police Office (PPCPO) has recorded no crime against persons in the last 2 weeks of September, making the beginning of the Christmas season in the city ‘generally peaceful’.

According to PPCPO spokesperson P/Capt. Maria Victoria Iquin, only crimes against properties, index-crimes, traffic incidents and drug related violations were recorded by the local PNP from September 1 -12.

“Puerto Princesa city is generally peaceful. Almost 2 weeks na no recorded incident na crime against persons” she said

Meanwhile, the PPCPO has increased its police visibility by conducting regular patrols in different public places around the city.

Iquin said this is done to reassure the public that the PNP is doing its job to protect their safety.

“Police presence in strategic locations will beef up efforts in fighting criminality, people in the community can freely proceed with their daily lives feeling secured,” she said.

Iquin responded that they will just stay focused on carrying out their duties in accordance with the law when asked about how the city PNP is handling the recent backlash in handling the Jovelyn Galleno Case on social media.

“Ang bashers kasama na yan sa araw araw na buhay lalo na ang mga tao ay nakatutok sa social media. If we always stop and listen to every dog that barks, we will not reach our destination. Ang PPCPO ay tuloy tuloy ang trabaho para ipatupad ang mandate to enforce the laws and ordinances, maintain peace and order and ensure public safety and security sa tulong ng mga law abiding ,disciplined at mababait na mamamyan ng Puerto Princesa City” she said.
