Prague - The number of crimes dropped by 4 percent in 2012 in the Czech Republic, compared with 2011, and 304,528 crimes were committed, most of them being property crimes and violent crimes, Police President Martin Cervicek told journalists today.
The Czech police clarified 44 percent of the crimes registered last year.
Police Deputy President Vaclav Kucera said it is very serious that a substantial portion of the crimes were committed by people under the influence of drugs or other addictive substances.
Sunday is the safest day of the week as the lowest number of crimes were committed then. On the contrary, the most risky day is Friday.
Perpetrators of crime caused damage worth approximately 34 billion crowns in 2012.
The police seized profits from criminal activities worth 5.8 billion crowns last year, which is 1.5 billion crowns more than in 2011, Cervicek said.
