    A report released by the French National Observatory of Delinquency and Criminal Responses (ONDRP) also revealed that in 2017, the country saw a massive increase in both sexual and violent crime.

    The “victimization” survey run by the ONDRP makes it possible to measure the evolution of delinquency beyond the administrative statistics of the police and the gendarmerie, by probing the French who do not systematically file a complaint.

    According to the annual report, the number of people who experienced violence while out in public, rose from 173 000 cases in 2016 to 265 000 in 2017, signalling a 53 percent increase, according to conservative online news outlet Valeurs Actuelles.

    The other indicators inventoried by the ONDRP paint a darker picture of daily crime than previous years. Of the 265 000 cases reported, some 93 000 registered victims of either rape or attempted rape in 2017, up from 58 000 the previous year.

    Robberies are also on the increase, with 569 000 households attacked in 2017. Non-violent thefts have increased by 46 percent. Paris is the most prone to break-ins which mostly occur in the summer months and around Christmas time when people are away.

    Just over a million people say they have been victims of non-violent robberies while 210 000 say they had been robbed and subjected to violence.

    Earlier this week a report issued by the Council of Europe revealed that between 2005 and 2015 the prison population of France had also increased by 23 percent.

    French Interior Ministry have meanwhile revealed new figures showing a 20 percent increase in French murders.

    Migrant youth criminality has become such a huge problem in Paris, that police from Morocco have been brought in by French National Police in order to help deport the youths back to their home country.

    But while 1 500 Moroccans were arrested earlier this year, only six were actually sent home.
