Recently, the Commissioner Frantz Lerebours, spokesman of the National Police of Haiti (PNH) has reported a drop in the crime rate in the metropolitan area during the period between March to May, 2016. The figure for some sensitive crime rates between these periods were: (a) Rape: 64 in March, 43 in April and 34 in May; (b) Kidnapping: 10 in March, 3 during April and 1 in May; and (c) Homicide: 107 in March, 80 in April and 52 in May. While acknowledging his satisfaction in the drop in crimes, he has admitted that there were some more responsible factors other than policing which have contributed such drop. Following the publication of October 25 election results, Commissioner Frantz Lerebours arrested at least twelve people who defied all code of conduct for peaceful demonstrations, but later he was involved in an argument about the arrest of the former Head of the Port-au-Prince Prosecutor's Office, former District Attorney, Claudy Gassant and the former Communication Member of the Rene Preval National Palace and the General Secretary of the Haitian party Pitit Dessalines Assad Volcy. They did not allow the police to search their vehicles without the presence of a justice of the peace.
