Around 2,200 fights and beatings were recorded from the start of January to the end of June, down by 250 compared to the same period last year.

The number of car thefts dropped by 95 to 3,900 in the first six months of 2019.

Criminologist Prof. Brunon Hołyst said: “We are dealing with an accumulation of goods and possessions” among Polish society, which is acquiring more smartphones, electronic gadgets and equipment.

He added: “An increasing number of luxury goods are becoming more and more expensive, so criminals are trying to take advantage of that fact.”
