The French authorities say last year there was an 8.5 percent drop in the number of reported crimes in French Polynesia over 2005.
The French high commissioner, Anne Boquet, says the target of recording fewer than 10,000 incidents was reached, mainly thanks to a 23 percent decline in thefts and burglaries.
