Conclusion: In spite of that Andalusia registered a historical record year in tourism in the year 2016, the number of people in the security forces was not increased. Therefore, the rise in home robberies was very moderate. As a result the concept of security is working. What is inappropriate is the rise in home robberies in the City of Malaga & the consistently high number in Marbella.
