Turks Leading Foreign Criminals in Berlin

According to Berlin police statistics for the year 2010, immigrants committed around one fifth of all crimes in the city. The involvement of immigrants was especially disproportionate in crimes featuring a high degree of organisation, such as cocaine smuggling (67.2 per cent) or bag-snatching (59.8 per cent).

Of the 471,812 non-German crime suspects in total, 99,500 (21 per cent) came from Turkey, 31,771 from Poland (6.7 per cent), as well as 23,657 (5 per cent) from Italy.

The statistics do not include immigration-related offences or crimes committed by immigrants who now hold German citizenship.
