The country's overall serious crimes decreased by 26% in 2016, a significant overall decrease in crime in the Bahamas since the 2004, this according to Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade as he released the crime figures today at the Paul H. Farquharson Conference Centre during Meet the Press.

In 2016, over, serious crimes against property decreased by 29%. This overall decrease was influenced by double digit decreases in every category of crimes against property except shop breaking which was a single digit decrease of 9%.

Commissioner Greenslade also thanked members of the Force who he said sacrificed daily and put their lives on the line to make the Bahamas a safer place for all of us to live, work, visit and play.
