2006 Security Report: Slovaks more secure

According to the Cabinet's 2006 security report, which will be discussed in parliament on November 28, the security of Slovakia and its citizens was well provided for, despite a rise in hate crimes, car accidents and bank robberies.

Only one region reported an overall increase in crime – the Bratislava Region. This was despite no rise in organised crime since 2005 and a drop in violent and economic crimes.

Extreme groups radicalised in 2006. "Left-wing extremists were represented by individuals and small groups who acted in reaction to right-wing extremists, but didn't represent any major danger to the country," the report reads.

The security situation and structure of crime in Slovakia didn't change significantly in 2006. There were 115,152 offences, representing a y-o-y fall of 8,411. Of them, 53,245 cases were solved. From a regional perspective, most of the crimes (21 percent) took place in the Bratislava Region, which has 12 percent of the country's population. TASR
