Crime Statistics and Trends

This report shows you the trends of different crime types over time for each Local Government Area (LGA). These are reported every two years. Not all crimes are shown. This cannot be used as an overall indicator of crime for an area.

How will these reports benefit me?

Use this report to understand the prevalence of specific types of crime in your area. Work with the police and other agencies to implement programs within your location to assist students as required.

It can help assist answering questions such as:

What is the crime rate by crime category?
What is the crime rate over a period of time?

Some offence categories may not accurately reflect the actual level of crime in the community due to extraneous factors such as shifts in policing policies, or public reporting behaviour.
