“The past months have been tremendously hard and challenging for all of us. But as we look back, I must say that everyone deserves a tap on their back for being resilient and optimistic amid all the trials. Sa pagtatapos ng taon nais kong pasalamatan ang lahat ng kapulisan ng CALABARZON sa kanilang sipag at tapat na paglilingkod. Bagamat sila ay anak, kapatid at mga magulang din, nagawa pa rin nila ang kanilang mga tungkulin ng maayos upang mapanatili ang kaayusan at katahimikan dito sa rehiyon,” said Cruz.

Cruz said the police force of PRO CALABARZON along with the other government agencies, stakeholders and the community had been working hand-in-hand to ensure peace and order in the region.

“Malaking bahagi ng kaayusan at katahimikan ng rehiyon ay dahil sa tulong ng ibang ahensya ng gobyerno, stakeholders, lalong-lalo na ang mamamayan ng CALABARZON na patuloy na nakikpagtulungan sa pagsugpo ng kriminalidad sa ating bayan,” he said.

For the past six months, the Regional Investigation and Detective Management Division has documented 25, 372 total crime incidents. There is a decrease in the crime incident by 1.17 % or 300 incidents compared to July – December 2020 with 25, 672 crime incidents.

More so, based on the report, a total of 14, 850 or 96.15% of cases were cleared and 12, 735 or 82.45% were solved for the last 6 months this year.

“I always see to it that cases should be solved with utmost dedication because that is what a law enforcer should do. We give justice to the family of victims and put behind bars the criminals,” Cruz added.

Cruz highlighted the successful solution of the death of Lorena Presbitero De Jesus, Barangay Chairman of Brgy. Kanluran, Sta Rosa City, Laguna that happened last November 22, 2021 inside Pares Mami Store, beside Brgy. Kanluran Health Center and Barangay Hall of Brgy. Kanluran, Sta Rosa City, Laguna.

The victim’s daughter who witnessed the incident identified the suspects as Darby Gonzales Bernilla a.k.a Brad, a resident of 46 National Highway, Brgy. Tagapo, Sta Rosa City, Laguna and Rustom Bryle Yambao Maramba a.k.a Teban/Utum, a resident at Maramba Compound, Añonuevo St., Brgy. Kanluran, Sta Rosa City, Laguna.

The case was filed before the Office of the City Prosecutor of Sta Rosa, Sta Rosa City, Laguna docketed under IS No. IV-19-INV-21L-00588 duly received by Assistant City Prosecutor James E.

“After this holiday season, we shall focus on the coming elections. We shall make sure that the people of CALABARZON are safe as they practice their right to suffrage. Ang bawat boto ng mamamayang Pilipino ay susi at tulay tungo sa panibagong pag-asa. Pangalagaan natin ang katahimikan at kaayusan lalo na sa panahon ng eleksyon. Makipagtulungan po tayo sa PNP!,” Cruz as he called on the people to work with the PNP to have safe, secure and peaceful elections.
