Lowest number of criminal offences since 1992 in Germany
In 2017, the German police recorded 5,761,984 criminal offences. At roughly 5.76 million, the number of criminal offences committed in Germany is the lowest since 1992.
This drop in crime is even more apparent in relation to the total population: fewer than 7,000 offences per 100,000 residents. That is the lowest rate in more than 30 years.
