The crime rate in New Zealand has dropped to what police say is its lowest in 29 years.
According to the latest figures released today, the crime rate fell by 4.1 percent which means that there were 15,602 fewer crimes recorded in 2013 than in 2012.
Taking into account population growth of 0.9 per cent meant offending per head dropped by five per cent.
Auckland and Wellington recorded the biggest reductions at 9.9 per cent, Bay of Plenty 7.4 per cent and Southern 6.6 per cent.
