(NARR:) Font: Washington, DC


Police departments all over the country have been saying it... and now the FBI has made it official... serious crime has fallen dramatically all over the country... down a solid five percent in 1998.

(NARR: VIDEO/GRAPHIC)


Robberies fell a whopping 10 percent... to their lowest level since 1978. The murder picture is even better. Even though the U-S is still the world leader in homicides... the murder rate fell to its lowest level since 1967 (down 7-percent). Also down: forcible rape (down 3-percent), aggravated assault (down 5-percent), and burglary (down 5-percent)

(NARR:)


Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder says the Clinton administration deserves some of the credit.

(ERIC HOLDER, DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL)

"THE COPS PROGRAM HAS WORKED. THE BRADY ACT HAS WORKED - GETTING GUNS OUT OF THE HANDS OF FUGITIVES, FELONS, AND STALKERS. THE WAY IN WHICH WE'VE TRIED TO FORM PARTNERSHIPS WITH OUR STATE AND LOCAL COUNTERPARTS HAS WORKED AS WELL. AND THEN GOOD PREVENTION PROGRAMS."

(NARR: byrd, sheppard, vigils to stop hate crimes, etc)


But when it comes to hate crimes, the picture hasnt improved much at all. Along with the well publicized murders of a black man in Texas and a gay college student in Wyoming... there were more than 77-hundred hate crimes reported, most of them based on racial bias. . The FBI numbers also confirm what gay rights groups have been saying, that attacks based on sexual orientation have been going up..

(ONCAMERA CLOSE)


The numbers may be crystal clear, but the reasons for the lower crime rates are a lot fuzzier. Law enforcement officials point to everything from the economy... to the aging criminal population, and to what they call the incarceration factor. With more almost 2-million Americans behind bars, there are fewer criminals on the street to cause trouble.
