Crime statistics publications

Crime statistics publications

In addition to the regular detailed data releases via policedata.nz, from time to time Police produces crime statistics publications in PDF format. These publications can be found below.

Of note, the Crime in New Zealand at a Glance report is produced on the last working day of each month, and summarises crime statistics released via policedata.nz on the same day.

Prior to the introduction of Recorded Crime Victims Statistics (RCVS) and the Recorded Crime Offenders Statistics (RCOS) in 2014, Police produced statistics on recorded offences and apprehensions. Historic reports of these earlier statistics are available below. Statistics New Zealand also provides public access to a database containing historic Offence and Apprehension statistics.
