MONTGOMERY, AL (WAFF) - Statewide crime decreased four percent during 2013 in the annual report released today by the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center.

In addition to the overall four percent decrease in crime, the report indicated a five percent decrease in the number of property crimes and a three percent decrease in the number of violent crimes.

"This is the 38th year the ACJIC has analyzed and published the annual Crime in Alabama report," Said ACJIC Director Maury Mitchell. "This publication provides a 'snapshot' based picture of crime in the state designed to assist policymakers and law enforcement officials make more informed decisions in response to crime."

ACJIC is the state agency that connects Alabama's local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to the FBI's National Crime Information Center and provides access to law enforcement in all 50 states and internationally via Nlets, the International Justice and Public Safety Network.
