WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New data suggests that even though Wilmington is growing, crimes like murder, robbery, and assault in the city are doing the exact opposite.

The Wilmington Police Department says those crimes, known as part one crimes, dropped by 28% over the past decade, while the city’s population grew by nearly a third.

In Downtown specifically, part one crime dropped by nearly 67% from 2002 to 2012.
