Over the past ten year the average annual number of crimes reported was also just over 1 million. An average of 2,682 crimes was reported in Belgium every day during 2012.
The figures also show a sizable fall in the number of break-ins reported in commercial premises. The number of break-ins in company premises fell by 1,613 (-7.9%).
The number of ram raids also fell sharply, down 32.9% on 2013. All down in 2013 were the number of reported car thefts, home-jacking and handbag thefts from vehicles. However, the number of burglaries remains a cause for concern.
