FBI: Crime rate fell in 2017

ㅤ"Early estimates suggest national crime rates have continued to drop in 2018, according to the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University’s School of Law. The Brennan Center estimates crime is down in the nation’s 30 largest cities, including big declines in some of the cities that experienced the worst violence in the country.
ㅤMidyear data suggests the murder rate will decline more than 7 percent over last year, led by steep drops in San Francisco, Chicago and Baltimore, where gang violence has claimed hundreds of lives in recent years. Overall crime was down almost 3 percent in the first half of 2018."
