Police Crime Statistics

The Police Crime Statistics for the Federal Republic of Germany are prepared by the BKA. They are published annually – about the middle of the year – in a data file on the Internet and in book form during the second half of the year. Most copies are made available to police and judicial authorities, but also – for example – to universities. The Police Crime Statistics Yearbooks since 1997 and the corresponding tables of time-series data (“Zeitreihen”) starting in 1987 can be viewed on the BKA homepage (www.bka.de).

Unlawful (criminal) acts investigated by the police, including attempts subject to punishment, the number of suspects established and a wide range of further data on cases, victims or suspects are included in the Police Crime Statistics. Breaches of regulations, crimes against state security and road traffic offences are not contained in this publication. In the Police Crime Statistics for the Federal Republic of Germany, the data provided by the 16 State Criminal Police Offices are presented in the form of tables and graphics along with commentaries.

In 2007, 6,284,661 cases were recorded in Germany. Compared to 2006, this represents a decrease of 19,562 cases or 0.3%. Although the number of theft cases has decreased continuously in recent years, at approx. 41% theft still dominates the overall crime statistics. About half of all crimes are solved, but the clear-up rates varry greatly
between individual areas of crime: pick-pocketing lies at 5.7%, murder and manslaughter, however, at 96.8%.
