The Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) – Judicial Police – says that homicides and assaults fell in Costa Rica last year.

According to OIJ director, Francisco Segura, in 2012 there were 79 less violent deaths than in 2011. A decline was also recorded for assaults on indiviuals (13% less), vehicle thefts (15% less), though there was an increase in general thefts, in particular thefts of cellular phones and home robberies.
