Speaking to the President during his Talk to the People briefing, Año said index crimes in the country dropped to 34,552 in 2021 from 131,699 in 2016.

Index crimes refer to offenses considered as serious in nature with sufficient frequency and regularity citing murder, homicide, rape, robbery, carnapping, physical injuries, and eight other special complex crimes.

"Mula (rin) noong nakaraang taon ng 2021 kumpara sa taong 2020, makikita po natin sa total crime incidents na umaabot po ng 374,277 ang volume. Sa year 2021 ay 360,573 o mayroong pagbaba ng 3.66 percent sa total crime incidents (From the past year of 2021 as compared to 2020, we have seen that total crime incidents reached a volume of 374,277. In 2021, we have 360,573 or a decrease of 3.66 percent in total crime incidents)," the DILG chief added.

Año attributed these figures to the intensified anti-criminality program of the Duterte administration.

“Ano pong ibig sabihin nito? Nararamdaman po ng ating mga kababayan ang pagganda ng peace and order situation at ang pagiging kumpyansa na ligtas po ang ating mga mamamayan laban sa mga kriminal (What does this mean? Our countrymen feel the improvement of the peace and order situation and the confidence that our people are safe against criminals),” Año told President Duterte.
