Cincinnati police say homicides and violent crime were down overall last year compared to 2011.

Chief James Craig wants to see that trend continue this year.

"We've set for 2013 a very modest overall crime reduction goal of five percent. We had a five percent goal at the beginning of 2012 and we certainly exceeded that, ending the year with a ten percent reduction in overall crime," he says.

Over-the-Rhine, Avondale and Winton Hills saw the biggest drops in homicides. Walnut Hills and East Price Hill both saw increases.
