The numbers - provided by Glasgow City Council's youth justice officials - are just the latest telling of a story of vastly reducing youth crime in the city.
As we revealed last year, knife-carrying and knife assaults by young people have fallen fastest, helping to wean Glasgow from its traditional booze and blades culture.
Glasgow has become an international case study in how to deal with territorialism and territorial gangs in recent years - although nobody is claiming the problem is fixed.
However, youth offending has turned around ever since the old Scottish Executive's ill-fated get-tough "war on neds" came to an end with the SNP coming to power in 2007.
Police and their partners - including a range of youth work groups - have been especially successful with diversionary tactics, such as sport.
Chief Superintendent Andy Bates, local police commander for the new Greater Glasgow division of Police Scotland, said: "There is something different about the way we and other agencies deal with this generation.
"We are now looking at different interventions rather than putting people straight in to the criminal justice system.
"We are taking early and effective interventions, which is something that is being driven hard by the government.
"It is about catching people at that very early stage in their potential criminal career and diverting them away from that. The whole public sector has been doing this for years, but now it is beginning to gather a bit of momentum."
Crucially public perception of youth crime is also falling. Storm calls - when people ring up the police to complain about something - are carefully measured.
In 2012-13 there were 15,608 calls complaining about youths in Glasgow, usually that they were drinking in the street or causing a disturbance. That is a huge number. But it is down from 60,580 in 2006-2007. The drop: 74% in seven years.
Mr Bates is impressed. "One of the figures which is really important to me is reports from members of the public about youths drinking or causing trouble.
"It is not just police numbers that are down. The public are not reporting these incidents of youths drinking in the streets, of youths causing a disorder. That to me is the litmus test. It is great for me to say there has been a huge reduction but when you have the public saying the same things, then I think that is quite a powerful message."
MY VIEW: Matt Kerr, Glasgow City Council
"THE latest figures on the continued decline of youth crime in Glasgow highlight a tremendous success story for the city.
"The drop in complaints to the police about young people is startling, and this is backed by statistics showing a remarkable 45% reduction in the number of youngsters being charged by police over the past five years.
"Our youth justice teams and their partners deserve tremendous credit for building a system that has delivered impressive results year on year.
"The approach has been to nip trouble in the bud while working intensively with the most troubled youngsters and their families.
"But the way Glasgow's young people conduct themselves must also be properly acknowledged.
"The truth is that the vast majority of our youngsters do not cause their communities problems.
"Even those flirting with criminal behaviour can be now quickly diverted away from offending if we put the right measures in place.
"What remains an issue of us is that a tiny minority of young people are responsible for disproportionate amounts of crime.
"We put a big focus on tackling the issues these individuals face and that is helping to make communities across Glasgow safer and more secure."

"I'M incredibly pleased that crime, especially amongst young people, continues to fall. 'Youth Crime', as it has been labelled, was something that saw the minority blight the good name of young people and very often it was young people who were the main victims of these crimes.
"Not that long ago gangs ran rife in parts of Glasgow and crime was a top issue for young people. I'm glad that gangs of young people now seem like something of the past for many, and that crime is no longer the top issue for the young people I represent.
"One of the main reasons why crime amongst young people has fallen has been the fantastic investment and support for youth work over the last ten years.
"The diversionary activities which the police and others have facilitated with youth workers has helped to give young people, who once would have fallen into the cycle of crime, a real fighting chance for a better life as well as cutting crime.
"Sadly, investment in youth work is being slashed in Glasgow and across Scotland and I'd urge the politicians to think again.
"Alcohol consumption has also been falling amongst young people, which I think has contributed to falling crime and anti-social behaviour.
"Most disruption due to alcohol actually comes from those 25+ which is why I get very annoyed when 'young people' are blamed for this kind of anti-social behaviour.
"Continuing falling crime is something for us all to celebrate, but we mustn't become complacent around the need to continue providing quality youth and community work which stops crime before it starts."
