Benguet remains the most peaceful province in Cordillera

Cordillera - The province of Benguet remains peaceful with an observed decrease in crime rate of focused crimes except carnapping incidence. 

The average crime rate of the province recorded from January to October 2018 decreased by 34 percent compared to the same period last year, according to Police Provincial Deputy Police Supt. Luisito Meris during a recently concluded Peace and Order Council meeting. 

All of the focused crimes were observed to have been decreased and this is a positive news for the province of Benguet. 

According to Meris, the decrease in crime rate is attributed to the increase of police operation activities, increase in the latching of criminals, and good police community relations. 

He also said that the lowering of crimes may also be attributed to better and improved life of the people thus those crimes committed for survival reasons were minimized.

Governor Cresencio Pacalso is happy to note of the maintained peace and order in the province. This, he said, is a reflection and manifestation of the cooperation of all member agencies on peace keeping efforts which he hopes will continue even during the election period. 

Pacalso said so far, the province has never experienced any election-related violence and still remains the most peaceful. 

Lawyer Elenita Julia Tabangin-Capuyan, Comelec-Benguet Election Supervisor noted that she never encountered any election-related violence in the province. 

She said that the people of Benguet are peaceful and they go door to door campaigning for more personal communication with the electorate.

"Benguet, ever since, has been very peaceful. It's 99-percent peaceful, as there have never been cases of election-related violence in the province," Capuyan said.
