DAVAO CITY –  There has been an improvement in the peace and order situation in Tagum City according to the report of city mayor Allan Rellon during his State of the City Address on Wednesday.

Rellon said the city’s monthly crime rate is down from 93.39 percent in 2013 to 88.94 percent last year.

During his one-hour and 20-minute speech, Rellon said peace and order is one of the priorities of his administration.

He said the Special Task Group Tagum’s Finest arrested 41 individuals who were involved in illegal drugs last year, which is higher compared to 28 arrested in 2013.

The group acts as force multipliers for the national police and the security and traffic management offices.

Rellon said there are currently 49 members of the Tagum’s Finest which patrols in the city 24 hours daily.

He said the crime solution efficiency of Tagum City Police rose from 8.61% in 2013 to 63.39% in 2014.

Rellon addressed an estimate of 5,000 participants during the SOCA, which is tagged as the first reporting of a local chief executive in nine years. The last time a similar report was delivered was during the administration of former mayor Gelacio Gementiza. (davaotoday.com)
