Compared to the time of former President Benigno Aquino III’s leadership, statistics on focused crimes significantly decreased since Duterte assumed office, data from the PNP Directorate for Investigative and Detective Management (DIDM) showed.

DIDM head Police Director Augusto Marquez on Monday presented in a press conference the latest crime data as the PNP corrected the media and critics from some sectors claiming that 7,000 killings were due to the government’s drug war.

From July 1 last year until March 24, the total number of focused crimes—murder, homicide, robbery, theft, carnapping, physical injuries—decreased to 78,941 from 158,879," a report from Inquirer said.
In a recent Pulse Asia survey, it found that 82 percent of Metro Manila residents feel safer because of the much-criticized drug war.

“Napakalaki ng reduction sa carnapping, theft at robbery. May naririnig ba kayo na carnapping na very violent ngayon? Samantalang noon halos araw araw nasa TV on primetime news. Ngayon, wala na kayong nakikita o naririnig,” Marquez said.
