2016 Annual Crime Report

Fri, 2017-04-28

Commissioner of Police Mr. Michael A. DeSilva - The release of the 2016 crime report was delayed by technical issues with the new MEMEX crime recording system. The exercise of migrating data from one system to another was a lengthy one, and we took care to ensure that the numbers in this report are completely accurate.

Having said that, I can now report that total crime for 2016 fell by 164 crimes or about 4%. 2016 is the 3rd lowest year for total crime since 2000, behind 2013 (3,480) and 2014 (3,394).

Bermuda has recorded less than 1,000 crimes per quarter for 18 continuous quarters. That is a positive indicator that the general trend of total crime continues to be in a slight downward direction.
