Family violence statistics for Christchurch for the period September 2010 - May 2011
Currently, Official Statistics on Recorded and Resolved offences are published every six months and police activities are published annually in the annual report. Police also publish a more current statistics of Monthly Statistical Indicators. The recent earthquakes in Canterbury have created a demand for more current statistics other than what is being published in the Monthly Statistical Indicators, particularly, Family Violence statistics.
To address this demand, New Zealand Police is publishing the following statistics on Family Violence for the three areas in Canterbury District; Christchurch Central, Northern Canterbury and Southern Canterbury.
Please note these data are provisional and drawn from a dynamic operational database. They are subject to change as new information is continually recorded. Also, these statistics do not undergo the full quality assurance processes that are applied to official statistics. Therefore, these provisional data cannot reliably be compared with the official statistics
