Reported crime in Tasmania has dropped by 10 per cent, new figures show.

The annual Crime Statistics Supplement for 2015-16, released on Friday, shows decreases in offences across the board, including a 26 per cent drop in building burglaries, however fraud matters were up by 13 per cent.

"There is always more work to be done, and Tasmania Police will continue to focus on reducing crime through our Crime Response Plan," Assistant Commissioner Glenn Frame said.
