“Police presence around the main crime hotspot areas in the National Capital District during the long Easter season has resulted in fewer serious crimes reported.”
That is from the Metropolitan Superintendent for the National Capital District, Chief Inspector Silva Sika. Aside from this, Met Supt Sika did confirm several incidents that occurred over the weekend, he said so far, they have received positive feedback thanks to all the hard work put into ensuring the security of the citizens.
“Tents set up all throughout the city by the police station commanders and their members who did motorist and foot patrols during the five-day operation that started on Thursday and ended on Monday.”
Most of the crimes reported were minor offences regarding alcohol consumption with police being able to attend to them swiftly. He added that due to the proximity of each Mobile station at various hotspots around the city, his men were able to cover more ground and assert their presence, ensuring the safety of everyone.
This would have not eventuated if the public had not behaved during the Easter period, which Sika highly commended. Furthermore, he issued warnings to drivers, especially service providers such as cabbies [Taxi Drivers] to be careful, mainly at night while driving around as criminals are now devising tactics to rob unsuspecting service providers.
Sika also advised that people should not put themselves in situations that may lead them to be a victim of a crime.
