Games keep criminals away from work
Crime has dropped by 30 percent in downtown Sydney even though the city has been inundated with one million extra visitors for the Olympics, police said.
Police, who are saturating the city centre with officers 24 hours a day, said every type of crime from assaults to theft was down.
"Crime figures have dropped dramatically which is good news," a police spokesman said. "We have about one million extra visitors in the city at the moment and that's a million extra targets."
