CHAPTER 5

Crime and Deliquency

     Crime incidence is a good indicator of the peace and order situation of an area.  Crime statistics throughout the country, however, generally suffer from undercoverage, the extent of which is not known. Thus, an area with a higher crime rate than other area does not necessarily mean that the former is relatively less peaceful and orderly than the latter.  Moreover, this limitation must also be considered when comparison is done overtime.

Crime Volume

     Reported crime volume in 2008 totaled 270. Of this number, 165 were index crimes and 105 were non-index crimes.
