  • The number of reported crimes in Malmö is down at its lowest level since surveys began.
  • The drop does not apply to all types of crime or all areas in the city.
  • A drop is not always good news. Increased police presence generally leads to a higher number of reported crimes in a given area. The uncertainty factor is less.
  • Certain types of crime require a report to ensure insurance payout. In principle, there is no uncertainty factor for these. Reports of this type of crime are also in decline.

Total reported burglaries

  • The number of reported burglaries with theft is dropping in Malmö and is now at the same level as the big cities.
    The reporting rate is, in principle, 100%, which indicates a real decline in this type of crime.

Total reports of weapon possession

  • The number of reports of weapon possession in Malmö and Stockholm has grown in recent years. The reporting rate depends on police work, investigations and targeted campaigns, as the reports are filed by the police themselves or the Customs Service.  
    More than one weapon can be impounded per report.
