incidence. It answered the following: (1) what is the crime statistics in Naga City for CY

2008-2010 along: a. index crime; and, b. in-index crime? (2) What is the level of

implementation of crime prevention strategies for CY 2008-2010 along: a. anti-street

crime strategy; b. community-based anti-crime strategy; and, c. crime awareness

strategy? (3) Are there significant differences in the level of implementation of crime

prevention strategies among aspects and among periods? (4) What is the impact of the

implemented crime prevention strategies on the crime reduction? (5) What

programs/measures can be designed to lessen the level of crime in Naga City?

The salient findings were: (1) 2,733 index crimes and 2,373 non-index crimes

prevention strategies along anti-street crime strategy, community-based anti-


crime strategy and crime awareness strategy obtained weighted means of 2.56, 2.55,

and 2.31 respectively. (3) Obtained p-values among aspects and among periods were
