National crime figures released on Tuesday show that crime dropped significantly last year, but attacks on emergency service workers is one of several types of crime on the rise.
Last year, the authorities recorded 5.76 million crimes the lowest number since 1992 and in relation to the population, the recorded crime rate is lower than at any point in the past 30 years, the Interior Ministry announced in Berlin on Tuesday. For every 100,000 inhabitants, less than 7,000 crimes were recorded last year.
Germany has become safer, but there is no reason to sound the all-clear, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said as he presented the national crime statistics for 2017 on Tuesday.
According to the Interior Ministry, 55.7 percent of crimes were solved last year, the highest proportion in over a decade. At the same time, clear-up rates depend heavily on the type of crime: at one end of the scale, 17.8 percent of burglaries were solved; at the other end, 95.6 percent of homicides are solved.
Three quarters of last years 1.98 million suspects were men. About 30 percent of the suspects were not German citizens.

Johannes-Wilhelm Rörig, Independent Commissioner for Child Sexual Abuse, responded to the news by describing the shocking extent of crime involving child and youth pornography which currently exists.
The crime statistics also showed that violations of the weapons law increased by 10.3 percent and drug offenses by 9.2 percent. There was also a strong increase of 28.7 percent in white-collar crime, which the Interior Ministry attributed to an unspecified complex investigation that was concluded last year.
They just limit crime reporting therefor crime rate goes down.
I call BS. Those friendly Muslims must be protected by the government and statistics
If you don’t record them they didn’t happen.
Duh. The native Germans are afraid to venture out in their streets after dark because of the “migrants.” That surely cuts the crime rate.
30-year low?! No F’ing way. If nothing else, the “migrants” bring in crimes like drug dealing, theft, and prostitution. It’s a given.
