Statistics

Crime statistics

Statistics New Zealand now provide the ability to query the New Zealand Police Statistics – allowing you to gather detailed crime information about your local area for the last 10 years. This service complements the official pre-formatted reports provided below.

The official New Zealand Police Statistics are released on the first working day, three months after the close of the reporting period.

A subset of provisional indicator statistics are also available (see Monthly Statistical Indicators). These provisional monthly statistical indicators are counted differently than the official statistics for recorded offences published each April and October (below). Monthly statistical indicators should therefore not be compared to official statistics.
