·1 min read

CASES of violence against women and children in the Central Visayas have declined for the first quarter of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021.

Brigadier General Roque Eduardo Vega, head of the Police Regional Office (PRO) Central Visayas, said cases involving violence against women and children (VAWC) have significantly dropped this year compared to last year.

Data from the Regional Women and Children's Protection Desk noted a decline of 64.44 percent in the total number of VAWC cases, with 629 cases for the first three months this year compared to 1,769 in the same period in 2021.

“The strict implementation of laws against women and children resulted in fewer cases of abuse of women and children in Central Visayas this year in collaboration with our local government units and our police women at the Women and Children Protection desks engaged in community development programs to address issues on gender equality and discuss women empowerment, especially in the provinces,” said Vega.

On its peace and order accomplishment from January to March this year, the PRO regional crime solution efficiency rate is at 52.82 percent, while its crime clearance efficiency rate is at 97.83 percent.

The top 3 performing police offices in crime solution efficiency are Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) with 78.17 percent, Mandaue City Police Office (MCPO) with 70.37 percent and Cebu Police Provincial Office (CPPO) with 55.29 percent.

On crime clearance efficiency, the top performers are Siquijor Police Provincial Office (100 percent), followed by MCPO, CCPO and CPPO at second with 99.61 percent and Bohol Police Provincial Office at third with 99.09 percent. (GDC, TPT)
