Councillor Cammy Day, Community Safety Leader for the City of Edinburgh Council, said: "I am delighted that there has been such a significant drop in crime in the north of the capital. A huge amount of work has been put into tackling criminal activity in this part of Edinburgh, and the figures reflect that this effort has been well worth it.
