by Hanna C. Lacsamana

Close to P11 million has been added to the city’s coffers from traffic violation fines through the implementation of traffic management and enforcement of traffic ordinances of Baguio.

As part of the accomplishment report of the Baguio City Police Office to city officials recently, S/Supt. Ramil Saculles, BCPO director, said a total of 37,163 individuals were apprehended for violating numerous city ordinances from January to November this year.

This translates to P10,813,950 collected by the City Treasurer’s Office due to traffic violations, reflecting an increase of 34 percent or P3,764,650 compared to the same period in 2016.

In addition to the revenue collection efforts of the city, P6,464,360 representing an 87 percent increase in the City Treasurer’s Office collection was contributed by the BCPO in the processing and issuance of police clearance and certification.

Moreover, the BCPO arrested 857 wanted persons from January to November, marking an increase of 241 arrests or 28 percent compared to the same period last year.

The arrests include the top most wanted person at the national level with P4.8M reward, one TWMP at the regional level, eight at the city level, and 64 at the station level.

Around 635 persons were also arrested by virtue of warrantless arrest through prompt response to calls and text messages sent to hotline numbers by citizens. Those arrested were involved as suspects in homicide, physical injuries, rape, robbery, and other non-index crimes.

BCPO accounted 11 surrendered firearms, six recovered, and nine confiscated loose firearms. Thirteen persons were arrested for violation of the Comprehensive Law on Firearms and Ammunitions or Republic Act 10591 and 11 cases have been filed in court.

Twelve search warrants granted by the court resulted in the filing of six RA 10591 cases, five cases of violation of the Comprehensive Law on Dangerous Drugs, and one case of violation of the Illegal Gambling Law.

Around 25 individuals were arrested and seven firearms along with drug ammunitions were confiscated as a result of the search warrants.

For illegal gambling, 58 persons and 16 cases have been filed in court from January to November resulting from 30 illegal gambling operations.

Eight persons were also apprehended and three cases were filed relating to illegal logging, which resulted from 13 operations on environment protection.

BCPO has also rescued 283 minors who were suspects for violating the curfew, anti-graffiti, anti-spitting, anti-smoking, and prohibition in amusement centers and loitering during class hours.

The implementation of the oplan Double Barrel Reloaded illegal drug campaign of the Philippine National Police in Baguio accounted for 299 drug personalities arrested through buy-bust operations and other similar interdiction operations, 241 of which are suspected drug pushers and 58 are suspected drug users.

A total of 2,383 individuals surrendered through Project Tokhang and drug evidence confiscated amounted to P2,864,729.

Saculles added that out of 120 drug personalities in the city, only one high value target was left unaccounted for, but the person is no longer a resident of the city.
