Abstract:

Official crime statistics are based on administrative data collected by police in the course of their work. However, the recording and counting of crime reflects both the public's willingness to come forward and report incidents of crime and the police's own administrative procedures and priorities. This monograph reports on the findings of a review of Victoria Police crime statistics. The review was requested by the Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police to assess: the processes by which Victoria Police crime counting rules and classifications are applied to crime allegations; the data quality and monitoring mechanisms for crime statistics and clearing data; the methods and practices in relation to the recording and inclusion of crime data on Victoria Police's database; the reliability and veracity of the compilation of Victoria Police statistics; and the analytical programs and tools used to generate crime data. As well as assessing the above issues, the report makes recommendations to improve the recording of crimes and their conversion to published crime statistics.
