Taguig among SPD's best police stations.

Manila, Philippines - The Taguig City Police Station proved it is one of the best police stations in the southern part of the metropolis when it bested six other police units under the Southern Police District (SPD) in terms of crime solution and clearance efficiency after solving more crimes in 2013.

Based on the crime statistics report from the SPD, the Taguig City Police Station scored a 79 percent success rate in its Crime Solution Efficiency after solving 15,563 cases in 2013.

This means the city had the most number of solved crimes among the police stations under the jurisdiction of the SPD.

Placing 2nd on the list is the Pateros Police Station while third is the Pasay City Police Station.

Aside from Taguig City, Pateros and Pasay City, the SPD also has jurisdiction over the cities of Makati, ParaAaAaAeA~aque, Muntinlupa, and Las PiAaAaAe

The Taguig City Police Station also posted an impressive Crime Clearance Efficiency of 86.2 percent when it cleared 16,129 cases, which ranked them as the top police station in the SPD.

Senior Supt. Arthur Felix Asis, chief of the Taguig City Police, said a crime is considered solved when the suspect is identified, a case is filed in court, and the suspect is detained or arrested.

On the other hand, a crime is considered cleared when the case is filed in court but the identified suspect remains at-large.

Meanwhile, Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano lauded the Taguig City Police for their latest achievement.

She added the strong support and cooperation the local police get from the city government have proven to be beneficial to the community, especially in the fight against crime.
