Crime at train stations - data comparison with 2021 no longer applicable

The information on crime comes from the Federal Police's entry statistics, which is why it differs from the data in the police crime statistics, which are collected after the police investigations have been completed.

The frequency of controls at the respective train station also has an influence on the number of offenses detected.

A comparison of the data with the previous year is not very meaningful this year, because in 2021 the corona protection measures still had a lot of influence on mobility.

Fewer people were out and about in public space.

The Federal Government is currently voting on a reform of the Federal Police Act.

A controversial point is the question of which rooms the police can use at the train stations.
