Crime is as old as mankind itself. Since the biblical crime at the Garden of Eden, societies have emerged, laws have been created, and prohibitions have been declared but violations for forbiddances have continued. Crime has been with us from the very beginning; it has never ceased to disturb men’s living together. Moreover, it has become a common societal phenomenon, viewed by some as a normal symptom, as if it was a functional component of the organization of man groupings. The Philippines, being a developing country, is not exempted from occurrences of crimes. Newspaper and television news updates are loaded with all sorts “misbehavior”: murder, rape, theft, robbery and others. For this study, the crimes classifies into three: crimes against property (theft), crimes against person (murder), and rape. Though the latter could be considered crimes against person, it was decided that it should be separated from the rest because it is believed that is has different influencing factor, however it is noted that crime rates plunged over the past two decades. In fact, rates declined almost yearly. Between 1981 and 2000, crime rates for the crime against property and crimes against person declined by 80% and 61% respectively.
