The 2023 DGSN Annual Report: A 10% Decrease in Crime Rate

This Tuesday, December 26, the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) unveiled the outcomes of its activities during 2023, highlighting a period marked by positive and reassuring performance.

These results stem from sustained efforts aimed at enhancing the national police force over the past few years, both in terms of personnel and logistics. The strategic and comprehensive approach adopted for the 2022-2026 period is reflected in promising advancements.

Indeed, in 2023, there was a 10% decrease in crime. Police interventions covered 738,748 cases, with 723,874 individuals brought to justice. An additional indicator of the effectiveness of this approach, based on the pooling of services and resources within the DGSN, is the drop of homicides by (-25%), sexual assaults by (-4%), armed robberies by (-9%), vehicle thefts by (-19%), and violent robberies by (-6%).

This drop in crime rate is accompanied by an increase in the case resolution rate, averaging 95%, and 92% for violent crimes.

The DGSN annual report covered, in a 30 page detailed report, figures of Drug trafficking, Counterterrorism, Financial-economic crimes, Irregular migration, Cybercrimes and Violent theft acts.

The DGSN attributes this improvement to the increased resources available to investigators and the growing role of forensic and technical police.
