Statistics


The number of criminal code violations in 2013 in Japan fell below 2 million. This was the first time in 32 years that the number fell below this benchmark.

However, the rate of recidivism - repeat offenders - hit 46.7%, which is the highest since 1989.

More than half of the crimes were thefts. In addition, various types of scams are on the rise.
