Crime continues to fall across region

The latest crime data released by the Jefatura Superior de Policía de Andalucía Oriental suggests that despite the recession, crime across Eastern Andalucia (Jaén, Málaga, Almería, Granada) continues to drop, with 14.06% fewer crimes being committed so far this year over 2009.

The two types of crime with the biggest drops are bag snatching (a 31% drop) and vehicle theft (22% drop).

Better police training, with better cooperation between forces, and better backup from the funcionarios are all being cited as reasons for the drop.

Granada, once known as a petty crime hotspot, is now the third most crime free province in Spain.
