berlin - The crime figures in Germany show a decreasing trend. In 2017 they declined in all federal states, the most in Bavaria (-28.7 percent). Of the persons suspected of a criminal offense, 8.5 percent were immigrants. In total there are 167,268 cases. That writes the newspaper Die Welt, relying on the statistics of the police. These will be officially published on 8 May.
Since the large influx, the proportion of German newcomers has been recorded in crime. To this end, among others asylum seekers, status holders, protected refugees and illegal immigrants are counted. Most of the declarations against them were made because of pickpocketing or bagging (31.4 percent). Relatively often there was a sexual offense (15.7 percent), violence (15.2), robbery (15.1) and domestic burglary (10.7).
The city state of Berlin was the most dangerous location with 14 588 offenses per 100 000 inhabitants, followed by Hamburg (12. 480) and Bremen (11 960). Munich was by far the safest of all major cities in 2017. In some areas, crime increased, including drug offenses and prohibited gun possession.
