Violent crime in the United States dipped about 6 percent in 2010, marking a drop in the stats for the fourth straight year, the FBI reported Monday.

In 2009, the rate dropped by 5.4 percent.

The last increase came in 2006.

In 2010, the murder rate dropped 4.2 percent; aggravated assaults dipped 4.1 percent; rape was down 5 percent and robbery dropped 10 percent, the FBI reported.

Property crime dropped about 3 percent.

Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. issued a statement on the stats, saying:

“Safe communities are the foundation of our nation’s prosperity and I have made it a priority of this Department of Justice to protect the American public by aggressively fighting violent crime. The results of the 2010 Uniform Crime Report show that for the second straight year, our federal law enforcement agents continue to make progress on one of our core objectives — fighting violent crime across this country.”
