Camp Gen Simeon A Ola, Legazpi City – PRO5, through the implementation of Command Memorandum Circular (CMC) No. 2014-02 Policy on Operational Performance Output of Field Commanders (“Target Output Policy”), has gained tremendous ground in the fight against crime in the Bicol Region.
Spurred by the initial gains of the PNP P.A.T.R.O.L. Plan 2030 with the Chief, PNP’s Strategic Focus, “CODE-P: 2013 and Beyond” in Police Regional Office 5 (PRO5), this Command Memorandum Circular (CMC) was conceptualized to become one of the salient tools of PRO5 in its continuing journey towards the institutionalization of the Performance Governance System (PGS). It aims to attain this by giving direction and focus to the Field Commanders in the performance of their mandated tasks particularly in law enforcement, crime prevention, and crime solution by setting specific target outputs and timelines for accomplishment. It likewise aims to gauge the performance of the Field Commanders, the results of which shall be used as bases for their Individual Performance Evaluation Rating (IPER); conferment of awards; grant of rewards; placement; and/or relief from their present positions. Through this “brainchild” of the Regional Director, PCSUPT VICTOR P. DEONA, the Crime Solution Efficiency (CSE) in Bicol or the percentage of filed cases in court (wherein at least one of the suspects is arrested) out of the total number of crime incidents handled by law enforcement agencies for a given period of time, jumped from 29.54% in January-September last year to 36.77% for the same period this year. This accounts for a notable increase of 7.23%. This is also 2.23% more than the commitment of the PNP to increase the CSE by 5% by the year 2015. Also noteworthy is the upward spike in the Crime Clearance Efficiency (CCE- these are the cases filed in court but the suspect/s is/are not yet arrested) in Bicol or the percentage of cleared cases out of the total number of crime incidents handled by law enforcement agencies for a given period of time. The CCE increased by 12.59% from 51.58 % in January-September 2013 to 64.17% for the same period this year. This is already 7.59% more than the commitment of the PNP to increase the CCE by 5% by the year 2015. The positive numbers did not stop with the CSE and CCE. These also spilled over to Street Crimes (i.e. ROBBERY- Tutok Kalawit, Ipit Kotse, Estribo, Bukas Kotse, Snatching (bag, purse, jewelry, cellphone); THEFT- Laglag Barya, Salisi, Pickpocketing, Detaching parts and accessories of motor vehicle; SWINDLING/ ESTAFA - Budol-Budol, Vending of Fake Commodities; PHYSICAL INJURY - Gang Wars, Frat Wars, and Mugging/Bullying), which were reduced by 44.42% from 3, 566 in January-September 2013 to 1,982 for the same period this year. This indicates that PRO5 is on track to achieving its target of reducing Street Crimes by 50% in the year 2015. All these numbers and the positive responses from the PRO5 Regional Advisory Council, the community, the media, and other stakeholders in the Bicol Region are living proof that PRO5 is on track to attaining its own CY 2015 Commitment of “becoming the change that we want to see in the PNP”.
