Ruffy Biazon discovers how precincts manage lower crime stats


Are the police refusing to help for the sake of reporting a lower crime rate? This politiko had one example.

Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon was shocked to hear some hocus-pocus happening in one of the local precincts in his city, all in the name of muted crime statistics.

“Someone reported to me that a police precinct near them doesn’t want to accept their report of theft in their company. Candidly, they were told that the crime statistics in the precinct’s jurisdiction will go up. So they were referred to the barangay for the blotter. Tsk tsk!,” the disappointed politiko said.

Is this the nationwide strategy too?
