Local Government Area Crime Reports

The NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research has announced the introduction of a new series of Local Government Area crime reports.

The reports are designed to assist the Crime Prevention Division, Local Governments and communities in planning crime prevention initiatives. Each Local Government Area crime report will contain maps showing the location of all the major crime hotspots. It will also contain graphs indicating what times of the day, days of the week and months of the year, crime rates in the area tend to peak. The crime hotspots are presented in a way that helps the crime prevention planning process while at the same time protecting the privacy of crime victims.

The first report, which deals with the Sydney LGA, has been relased. Future reports will be placed on the Bureau’s website (www.bocsar.nsw.gov.au) as and when they become available.
