TULSA, Oklahoma -

Preliminary numbers show Tulsa's overall crime rate in 2012 was down, with the lowest homicide rate in a decade.

All of the city's 46 murder cases were solved, except for nine, which puts Tulsa's clearance rate far above the national average.

The number of reported rapes was up slightly at 301.

Robberies were pretty consistent year-to-year, with 1,106.

Tulsa had 6,045 burglaries, which is much lower than last year and continues a five-year downward trend.

Larcenies were also down, while aggravated assaults were up slightly.

The final numbers will be out later this month.
