Crime data now available for suburbs

South Australia Police has released the latest step in public access to crime statistics with its detailed crime statistical reporting at suburb/post code level.

Using new, advanced suburb-level crime mapping technology, South Australians can access the previous month’s crime statistics in any of the state’s suburbs.

Ceduna’s offences for August were headed by seven instances of ‘other theft’, so not from a motor vehicle or shop, with six instances of property and environmental damage and five cases of both serious assault not resulting in injury and common assault.

Until now the monthly crime statistics publicly available online reflected the whole of a police local service area, incorporating several suburbs.

With the introduction of the online crime mapping tool, statistics can be accessed at suburb level for the first time.

The interactive crime map is set to provide all South Australians with more information about the incidence of crimes against people and against property in their suburb or postcode area for the previous month.

For people interested in crime trends, police are working on providing crime trend data beyond a month, which will be made available in due course, while for those interested in longer term trend analysis, five years of suburb-based crime data for crimes against people and against property is available at: https://data.sa.gov.au/data/organization/south-australia-police
