Gov. Rick Scott says Florida is on a path to a 44-year crime low.
Believe it or not, the number of crimes across the Sunshine State is actually falling.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has released its numbers for the first half of 2014, which shows there were more than 8,000 fewer crimes committed in the first six months of this year than in that same time frame in 2013.
The number of non-violent crimes is down, including robbery, burglary and stalking. However, the number of murders, forcible sex offenses, aggravated assaults and domestic violence are all up.
Across Central Florida, most of our counties are in line with the overall report, seeing a decrease in crime across the board.
The biggest drop of nearly 11 percent was reported in Flagler County. Meanwhile, Sumter County actually saw the biggest rise in crime at 2.4 percent.
