The FBI says property crime is down across the country, but violent crimes are on the rise.
The number of reported burglaries and other thefts last year are down .9 percent when compared to 2011.
That's the 10th straight year of declines.
But violent crimes like murder and robbery are up, increasing .7 percent from 2011.
Texas figures mirror the national numbers, with property crime down nearly 2 percent, while violent crime has increased just more than 1 percent.
