Department of Public Safety releases crime report

Crime in Maine decreased by nearly nine percent during 2016, according to the Maine Department of Public Safety. It is the fifth consecutive year that crime has decreased in Maine for a total decline during the past five years of just under 40 percent.  Crime dropped roughly seven percent in 2015, 13 percent in 2014, over eight percent in 2013, and 1.5 percent in 2012. 

“The fifth consecutive drop in crime is encouraging, but drugs are still the driving force behind most crime in Maine,” said Public Safety Commissioner John Morris in a press release. “Drugs still affect all Maine law enforcement, with much of the drugs coming into Maine from out of staters affiliated with gangs,” Morris said.
