It may be useful to recall some basic data on crime and incarcerated population in Spain today: The crime rate is the third lowest in the European Union: only Greece and Portugal fall from the 44 crimes and infractions per 1,000 inhabitants of Spain. The homicide rate is the second lowest in the European Union, with 0.63% per 100,000 inhabitants. Only Austria improves our score. In addition, the recent evolution is very positive: crime has fallen 7.4 points since 2005 and violent deaths in 2016 are 43% less.
