From April 1 last year to January 24, there were 2,523 overall offences - down from 3,450 during the same period in the previous financial year.
Inspector Jon Roberts, the police chief for Cheltenham North, says the fall in crime is due to officers focusing on known offenders.
He said: "We are actively targeting known offenders and their associates now, rather than waiting for crimes to happen."
