Crime Statistics

Helping build a safer Canberra community

Each quarter, ACT Policing issues crime statistics illustrating the offences reported or becoming known in suburbs across Canberra.

The idea is to provide the community with a clear understanding of crime in their area. The town centres have also been highlighted to give the community a better idea of policing in the shopping and restaurant districts.
