Crimes in Preah Sihanouk province rose by 21 cases to 105 last year compared to 84 in 2017 – a 25% increase – said a report revealed at the closing ceremony of the annual achievement and goal setting by Preah Sihanouk provincial police on Wednesday.

The report showed that felony increased by four cases to 29, while misdemeanours increased by 17 to 76. The crimes caused five women to be killed and 21 to be injured, including three women. Two motorbikes were also lost besides other property.

“As a result of cracking down on crimes, 103 out of the 105 cases were resolved, equivalent to a 98% success rate. Of the 29 felony cases alone, 235 people were arrested, including 73 suspects out of which 48 were Chinese nationals."

“Of the 76 cases of misdemeanour, 162 suspects were arrested, including 47 foreigners made up of Chinese, German, Kazakh, and Indian nationals. All the cases have been sent to court,” the report said.

Speaking at the event, Thong Lim, the Deputy National Police Chief, instructed police to ensure security, political and social order is maintained, introduce timely preventative measures, and better implement village and commune safety policies.

Kong Vithanak, the Deputy governor of Preah Sihanouk province, reminded all provincial police officers to pay attention to criminal activities and make efforts to fulfil their duties to further maintain and protect security and [public] order.

“We should continue the implementation of village and commune safety policies, the control of foreigners, and preventive measures against any group of people that cause anarchy, and grab state and villagers’ lands among others,” Vithanak said.
