How it works!

The "Police Regional Office Cordillera Web-based Crime Mapping" allows the general public and the community to view up to date crime incidents within the region. We believe that providing this information to public will help in reducing the crimes in the region. Knowing where and when crimes happen allows the public to avoid being a victim by taking precautions when passing through those locations or taking alternative routes. The information provided online is limited to the basic attributes of the crime and does not expose the victim's identity or the suspect. Residents can also give tips or feedback regarding crimes and other issues to the Police force and the community. We strongly encourage the public to report crimes to the nearest Police Station within your location. This engages them to become partners in crime prevention and control.
