Abstract: As part of the CrimeMalta's preparatory activities to launch the Malta Crime Observatory Initiative, this report covers the 2014 annual statistics as elicited from analysis of reported crime, incarceration statistics and spatial analysis. The outputs below pertain to the closed 'accounts' for 2014 crime. In summary, at slightly higher than 16,600 reported offences, crime analysis has seen a stemming in the previous steady 5 year year‐on‐year incident increase that was initiated in 2009. A drop of 900 crime reports from 2013 was recorded reaching the 2006 level but has yet to reach the lowest recorded level of 12,000 offences registered in 2009. This higher level is mainly due to the large number of damages reported to the police, which include 4100 incidences that have gone down by 550 incidents from the previous year. 2013 had seen a jump, partially related to one single incident that resulted in a drastic number of damages, which related to the shipping industry blasting activity.
