Annotation: This report presents police and prosecution statistics on crimes, criminal investigations, and victimization costs in Hungary for 1993.
Abstract: Crimes reported by police in 1993 decreased 10 percent compared to 1992; there were also 8 percent fewer offenders and 15 percent fewer injured victims in 1992. Police initiated fewer investigations, and there were 4 to 5 percent more cases cleared compared to 1992. The greatest decrease occurred with property crime, notably in auto thefts, general thefts, and burglaries. Economic crimes (white- collar crimes) did not decrease significantly largely due to the difficulties in investigating such offenses. There was an increase in the costs of crime, both in property loss and in financial loss due to economic crimes. Crimes against banks played a significant part in the increase in crime costs in 1993. In 1992, such crime amounted to only 2 percent of total crime costs, compared to 30 percent in 1993. Disregarding crimes against financial institutions, crime costs decreased 10 percent compared to the previous year. Only 1.5 percent of financial losses were recovered in 1993. In other crime categories, such as crimes against persons, marital and family offenses, juvenile offenses, and offenses against morals and public order, there was an increase. Violent crime rates remained constant. 13 tables, 16 figures, and 9 appended statistical tables
