Preamble

Victoria Police Crime Statistics Official Release is prepared for release each year by Corporate Statistics, and includes statistical summaries of offences recorded by police in Victoria for the previous financial year. This release contains crime statistics for the 2011/2012 financial year, and includes data from recent financial years for basic trend analysis. The purpose of this document is to provide a summary of current crime trends, and not to comment on Victoria Police performance, or to assess or evaluate Victoria Police operational strategies. Statistics included in this publication were compiled from data stored on the Law Enforcement Assistance Program (LEAP) and extracted on 18 July 2012. LEAP is a dynamic database designed primarily for operational policing purposes. Victoria Police update existing records with new information as it becomes available, and revise records when investigation identifies additional information. The Central Data Entry Bureau of Victoria Police also amends records when quality control checks identify inaccurate or incomplete information. Due to the dynamic nature of LEAP, statistics produced at different times from the same data may vary. Because of this, statistics produced in this publication for previous financial years will differ slightly from those previously published. Recorded crime consists of those offences recorded on LEAP during the reporting period, regardless of when the offence occurred or when it was reported to police. Information contained in this publication relates only to those crimes reported to or detected by Victoria Police. The method of recording crime clearances has been changed this financial year in accordance with recommendations made by the Office of Police Integrity in the Report of investigation into Victoria Police crime records and statistical reporting (May 2011). Further details on this change can be found in Appendix 2. All figures are rounded to one decimal place. Because of this, percentage point differences in clearance rates may appear different than when calculated from the rounded figures in the tables and graphs. Care should be taken in interpreting misleadingly large percentage changes where figures are small, as these changes may not be statistically significant. Detailed crime classification rules and definitions are included in Appendix 1 to provide assistance in the interpretation of statistics. As the information presented in this document is by no means exhaustive, any requests for additional information should be directed to the Chief Statistician, Corporate Statistics.

Executive summary

2.1 State-wide crime statistics 2011/2012
Overall crime
In 2011/2012, Victoria Police recorded 391,325 offences state-wide. This was an increase of 8.2% from the number of offences recorded in 2010/2011. The 2011/2012 crime rate per 100,000 population was 7020.0, an increase of 6.8% compared with 2010/2011. This is the first time that the annual crime rate has risen since 2000/2001. However, the crime rate in 2011/2012 is still significantly lower than in past years. Over the last ten financial years, the crime rate per 100,000 population has decreased by 18.4%. The total number of recorded offences has decreased by 7.0% over the same period. Of the 391,325 offences recorded during 2011/2012, 168,200 were cleared within the same financial year. A further 34,054 offences which had been recorded in previous years were also cleared in 2011/12. This gives a total clearance rate of 51.7% (0.5 percentage points higher than the total clearance rate recorded in 2010/2011). Victoria Police has changed its method of calculating clearance rates this year, in accordance with recommendations made by the Office of Police Integrity in the Report of investigation into Victoria Police crime records and statistical reporting (May 2011). Please see Appendix 2 for further details on these changes. While total offences increased by 8.2%, Victoria Police processed 10.6% more offenders compared with 2010/2011. A total of 178,897 alleged offenders were processed in 2011/2012. In 2011/2012, 208,100 persons were recorded as victims of total crime, an increase of 6.2% from 2010/2011. Of these, 46,807 were victims of crime against the person (e.g. homicides, rapes or assaults). This was an increase of 14.1% on the previous year. There were also 77,676 business victims of crime recorded in 2011/2012.

Crime against the person
The number of crime against the person offences has increased by 11.8% during the last financial year, to 54,454 offences recorded in 2011/2012. As a rate per 100,000 population, this represents an increase of 10.3%. The increase in crime against the person was primarily driven by a rise in family violence-related crime. The number of these offences increased by 39.9% between 2010/2011 and 2011/2012. In contrast, crime against the person offences not arising from family incidents increased by 1.7%. Offences arising from family incidents accounted for 33.1% of all crime against the person offences during 2011/2012. All categories of crime against the person except for robbery increased between 2010/2011 and 2011/2012. Homicide offences increased by 14.6% from 151 in 2010/11 to 173 in 2011/12. 140 of these offences were substantive, while 33 were attempted, conspiracy or incitement offences. The most common type of homicide offence was murder, with 91 offences. There were 2,044 rape offences recorded in 2011/2012, an increase of 11.8% on the 1,828 offences recorded in 2010/2011. As a rate per 100,000 population, rape increased by 10.3%. The number of rape offences which were recorded as arising from family incidents accounted for 23.6% of rape offences, and increased by 39.6% in 2011/2012. Female victims accounted for 88.7% of rape victims. Sex (non-rape) offences also increased, rising 4.7% during the last financial year. As a rate per 100,000 population, sex (non-rape) rose by 3.3%. Female victims accounted for 79.5% of sex (non-rape) offence victims. Robbery decreased by 2.0%, from 3,353 in 2010/2011 to 3,286 in 2011/2012. The rate per 100,000 population decreased by 3.3%. The majority of robbery victims were male (74.8%). A significant proportion of robbery offenders (40.3%) were juveniles.

Armed robberies accounted for 1,597 (48.6%) of all robberies in 2011/2012, an increase of 3.9% since 2010/2011. The most common weapon used in armed robberies was a knife (50.7%). 17.0% of all weapons used in robberies were a firearm (including imitation firearms), an increase of 10.1%. During 2011/2012, the number of assault offences increased by 14.0%, while the rate of assaults per 100,000 population increased by 12.5%. Much of this increase can be attributed to the growth in assault offences arising from family incidents (43.3%). However, assaults not arising from family incidents also increased, by 1.3%. The most common type of location where assaults occurred was in residential locations. The number of assaults occurring in residential locations increased by 27.8% between 2010/2011 and 2011/2012. The majority (51.8%) of assault victims were male, but the number of female victims grew at a faster rate since 2010/2011, increasing by 24.2%.

Family Incidents
During 2011/2012, there were 50,382 incidents where police submitted family incident reports. This was 23.4% higher than the 40,839 reports submitted in 2010/2011. There has been a steady rise in the reporting of family incidents since the introduction of the Code of Practice for the Investigation of Family Violence in August 2004, and legislative change brought about by the Family Violence Protection Act 2008. Offences related to family incidents, such as assaults and abduction/kidnap, have risen as a result of this increased reporting.

Crime against property
In 2011/2012 there were 265,472 offences against property, an increase of 4.7% compared with 2010/2011. Crime against property has increased as a rate per 100,000 population by 3.3%. In 2011/2012, there were 49,027 offences of property damage recorded by Victoria Police, a decrease of 1.8% compared to 2010/2011. Property damage offences arising from family incidents increased by 37.9%, while those not arising from family incidents decreased by 0.8%. Property damage offences arising from family incidents make up 9.2% of all property damage offences. Aggravated burglaries and residential burglaries both increased over the last financial year, by 16.3% and 6.2% respectively. The number of aggravated burglaries involving weapons or injuries increased by 6.7% in 2011/2012, and accounted for 21.7% of aggravated burglaries. The number of theft from motor vehicle offences recorded in 2011/2012 (46,696) was 4.6% higher than that recorded in 2010/2011. An increase of 8.1% was seen in theft of number plates, which was the most common type of property stolen. The number of theft of motor vehicle offences recorded in 2011/2012 (15,663) was 9.0% higher than the 14,374 recorded in 2010/2011, reversing the downward trend that has been seen over the past decade. Shopsteal offences were the only type of crime against property that decreased over the last financial year. This category of offence decreased by 3.6%, to 19,828 offences.

Drug offences
In 2011/2012 there were 18,732 drug offences recorded, an increase of 22.8% compared with 2010/2011. There was an increase of 11.3% for cultivation, manufacture or trafficking of drugs, and an increase of 27.3% for possession or use of drugs. Cannabis was the most common type of drug found in both possess/use offences and cultivation/manufacture/trafficking offences.

Other offences
Other offences increased by 19.6% in the last financial year. The largest percentage increase in this category of crime was in harassment, which increased by 35.0% compared with 2010/2011. The number of offences recorded under the behaviour in public offence category in 2011/2012 (6,414) was 7.1% lower than the number recorded in 2010/2011. Behaviour in public offences peaked in 2010/2011, after the introduction of Penalty Infringement Notices (PINs) and Official Offender Warnings (OWRs) for offences “Behaves in a riotous indecent offensive or insulting manner” and “Uses profane indecent or obscene language or insulting words” on 1 July 2008. There were 25,563 justice procedure offences in 2011/2012, an increase by 27.7% compared with 2010/2011. Justice procedure offences arising from family incidents increased by 41.9%, while those not arising from family incidents increased by 20.4%.

o This gives a better gauge of the amount of work that police do in a year. Though no evidence was found in the investigation that Victoria Police members have been manipulating clearance rates in this manner. An ITS is recorded in the Law Enforcement Assistance Program (LEAP) as pending authorisation until the ITS is authorised or declined by the police member’s supervisor. The 1997/98 annual Crime Statistics publication recorded the introduction of the new charge/summons process. o Single year clearances with ITS are still available in the table below. OPI recommended that Victoria Police review its standards for recording clearance rates to prevent future exploitation. the Office of Police Integrity (OPI) tabled a report to Parliament on an investigation into Victoria Police crime records and statistical reporting. the crime is recorded as cleared for reporting purposes. however. Currently. In 2011/2012. plus the clearance rate of crimes from previous years. o Single year clearances are still available in the table below. but split it into two components as detailed. as detailed below. Data for both the new and old method of reporting crime clearance rates are provided in Figure 90 on the following page. • The Intent to Summons process In May 2011. rather than on single year clearance rates.1 Appendix 2 Changes to Clearance Rates There have been two major changes to the method by which Victoria Police calculates clearance rates in 2011/2012. 54 .9 9. the majority of ITSs have been authorised and have resulted in an offender being processed for the crime. and noted the possible effect it could have on crime statistics. o This is in accordance with a recommendation by the Office of Police Integrity in the Report of investigation into Victoria Police crime records and statistical reporting (May 2011). Victoria Police have removed ‘Intent to Summons’ (ITS) from the clearance rate calculation. for time series consistency. o Victoria Police has not previously published the total clearance rate in the annual Crime Statistics publication. This investigation found an issue with the process by which Victoria Police computes clearance rates. OPI has written that because of this. and will henceforth be recorded as cleared. All figures were extracted from the LEAP database on 18 July 2012 and are subject to variation. Historically. as police members could theoretically issue an ITS and ‘clear’ a crime while never expecting an offender to actually be processed. In previous Crime Media Releases. Victoria Police has complied with this recommendation and removed Intent to Summons from clearance rates. The process allows police members to record a nexus between a suspect and a crime whist the summons authorising process is occurring. and is unique to Victoria Police crime recording. as soon as an ITS has been issued. it is possible that the ITS will not be authorised. to allow for time series comparison purposes. The ITS process was introduced during March 1998 as part of a Data Improvement Project. Victoria Police has reported on two types of clearance rates: • • Single year clearance rate o The rate of crimes recorded and cleared within the same financial year period.
