Although crime in Detroit has declined in recent decades, the city had the sixth highest number of violent crimes among the twenty-five largest cities in 2007. This incidence of crime in parts of the city has brought it notoriety. The city has tried to shake its crime-laden image for the city center, pointing to a 2006 study, where crime in downtown Detroit (CBD) is shown to be much lower than national, state and metro averages. According to a 2007 analysis, Detroit officials note that about 65 to 70 percent of homicides in the city were confined to a narcotics catalyst.
