City police say that so far this year, the local crime rate has dropped significantly.
Shelbyville Police Chief Robert Schutte said that statistics comparing the first six months of last year with this year show a 36 percent drop in the city's crime rate.
He added that the decrease is not in any one area, but across the board.
"I'm talking about everything," he said. "Part I crimes are your major crimes, like murder, rape, robbery and assault, larceny. Part II crimes are shoplifting and so forth. It's all down. It's a good thing."
