They said in difference to mainland France, domestic violence cases dropped during the lockdown and were down by 11 percent.
This was being attributed to the ban on the sale of alcohol.
Reported violent incidents were down by 23 percent but they noted that such crime was more common in Tahiti than in mainland France.
