Costa Rica faced crime growth last year

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

Last year was a rough one for Costa Rica when it came to crime.

Nowhere was this more clear than the dramatic increases in homicides and burglaries of homes, according to the Judicial Investigation Police’s 2014 annual report released Monday.

Homicides spiked across the country by 14.6 percent – more than any other crime – with 471 people killed during 2014. That number was up from 411 in 2013.
