Preliminary data released Tuesday from the FBI shows the crime rate for Lansing has dropped.
The numbers show a decline in both violent and property related crimes.
Lansing Police Chief Teresa Szymanski says sharing information is a powerful weapon to fight crime and she believes it's brought down crime over the last year.
"The credit goes to the men and women of the Lansing police department along with our law enforcement partners both state and federal," said Lansing Police Chief Teresa Szymanski.
The most recent FBI numbers show for the first half of 2012, Lansing had fewer robberies, burglaries and rape cases than the same time a year earlier.
"There is safety in that, there is security in that," said Mayor Virg Bernero.
Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero says there is nothing like a nosy neighbor and neighborhood watch groups play a key role in stopping crime in its tracks.
"It's the neighbors, the neighborhood watch that is the eyes and ears for our police department and I think that's provided an extra measure of safety in Lansing," Chief Szymanski said.
But both the mayor and chief say there is still work left to be done as the city witnessed 12 homicides in 2012.
"One crime is one to many, especially when about 75 percent of last year's homicides were committed with guns," Szymanski said.
And the chief says the best defense is working together from neighbors to law enforcement to cities.
"That is just a wonderful tool to have in your toolbox and building those partners within the community, because the Lansing police department can't be on every corner."
Meaning the more help the city can get from the community the more crimes they will solve.
