Crime Statistics for fiscal year ending 30 June 2010

Date Published: 
October 2010

These documents provide the Summary of Recorded and Resolved Offence Statistics broken down into 12 districts plus one national publication. They were released 1 October 2010 and cover calendar year ending 30 June 2010.

The classification used to publish Police Official Statistics for recorded and resolved offences is changing to align with the direction given by the Justice Sector Information Strategy for the whole Justice sector. Offences will now be grouped according to the Australian Standard Offence Classification (ASOC).

This transition does not change the total number of offences reported; just how they are grouped. For this release, the statistics are presented using ASOC and the old Traffic Precedent and Offence Classification (TPOC).

Statistics reported in this document are derived from the Police National Intelligence Application (N.I.A) These Official Crime Statistics present a snapshot of data in N.I.A. relating to offences within a given year, as at the date 14 days following the end of that year.

An incident that is reported to or detected by Police where Police believe an offence is likely to have been committed is counted as a Recorded Offence.  A Recorded Offence is considered to be a Resolved Offence by Police when an offender is identified and dealt with (warned, cautioned, prosecuted, etc).
