Crime Statistics Appear to be Dropping in the Capital Region

It looks like crime in the Capital Region could be dropping. 

According to the Times-Union preliminary numbers show that property crimes fell in Albany, Schenectady and Troy last year. 

Violent crime was only up slightly in Albany. 

The report, from the Gun Involved Violence Initiative, or GIVE, looks at seven particular crimes and the impact guns have on those categories. 

Officials say the report follows an overall trend of upstate cities becoming safer.
