Luxembourg crime figures improving, says Schneider

Deputy Prime Minister Etienne Schneider, revealed Luxembourg crime-fighting figures on Monday at a police meeting in Leudelange, and they appear to be pretty positive.

Overall the number of offences in Luxembourg has declined by about ten percent since 2015, showing improved results for the first half of 2016.

But Schneider focused on a district that many see as one of the worst crime-hit areas of Luxembourg City; the Gare district.

According to the Deputy PM, recent actions by police have helped make the neighbourhood safer overall and more than 100 people have been detained there, relating to various crimes, during 2015.

Schneider also gave assurances where police reforms are concerned, stating that the budgets for the police service will not change.
