He recalled that for the past 5 years, crimes in Kalinga continue to decline, especially during the pandemic, attributing it to most people being confined in their homes.


“So even if we get back to normal, hopefully, hindi tataas [ang crimes],” he said, citing that the possible crimes to happen after the pandemic and drinking places will be opened are robbery, theft, physical injuries, and alarm and scandal among others.
