Number of CICL cases decreasing

SAN JOSE, Antique - The Antique Provincial Police Office (APPO) has seen a decreasing trend in the number of Children in Conflict with the Law (CICL) cases in the province since 2015.

APPO has recorded 28 CICL cases from January to October this year, which is significantly lower compared to the 90 cases last year and about 110 in 2015.

 In a radio interview with PIA recently, SPO3 Cheryl Sapinosa of APPO said that she is happy to see the decrease in the number of cases. 

 In the previous years, there was an average of almost 10 cases of CICL per month, said Sapinosa.

 CICL refers to anyone under 18 who comes into contact with the justice system as a result of being suspected or accused of committing an offence.

 Most of the CICL cases are a result of minor physical injury, according to Sapinosa.

 The police coordinate with the Provincial Social Welfare and Development (PSWDO) and its social workers in monitoring CICL cases.

 In the case of children who committed crimes such as robbery or rape, rehabilitation at the Regional Rehabilitation Center for the Youth (RRCY) in Guimaras is needed acoording to Sapinosa. (JCM/CBA/PIA6-Antique)
