In 2019, a total of 640 crimes committed by 1,085 children were recorded. It is worrying that most children participate in the commission of one crime because the number of perpetrators is almost twice as many as the number of crimes committed.
The share of juvenile delinquency in total crime is about 2.7%, which is slightly below the average.
Most of the children commit property crimes (479 crimes), and there are also acts with an element and violence – three attempted murders, 16 grievous bodily harm and 25 robberies. Children also appear as perpetrators of crimes in other areas, such as illicit trafficking (40 crimes), economic crime (five crimes) and organized crime (six crimes).
