Commissioners Foreword
The Queensland Police Service Annual Statistical Review 2010/11 provides a comprehensive record of crime statistics for Queensland. It includes information on levels of reported and cleared crime, traffic related matters and police personnel. The Statistical Review is a key component of the Services overall performance management and accountability framework. The Statistical Review also has a strategic role. In order to help ensure the safety and security of Queenslanders, the Service continues to formulate relevant and innovative policing strategies. The information contained in the Statistical Review supports evidence based, strategic decision making. This years Statistical Review continues the encouraging safety and security outcomes of recent years. It was pleasing to see a further 3% decrease in the States overall crime rate when compared with the previous year. Over the eleven year period 2000/01 to 2010/11, the State has recorded decreases in the rate of offences against the person (25%) and offences against property (46%) which has resulted in a decrease of 30% in the overall crime rate. Key outcomes for 2010/11 include: % decrease in the rate of total offences against the 6 person; % increase in the rate of total offences against property; 4 and 1% decrease in the rate of total other offences. 1 All of the six categories in offences against the person recorded decreases, homicide (murder) 11%, other homicide 33%, assault 6%, sexual offences 9%, robbery 3% and other offences against the person 4%. The following categories of offences gainst property reported decreases, unlawful entry 3%, arson 12%, fraud 12% and handling stolen goods 6%. The categories of other property damage, unlawful use of motor vehicle and other theft (excl. unlawful entry) all reported increases in the rate per 100,000 persons which resulted in an overall increase in offences against property. In the other offences group breach domestic violence orders was the only category to report an increase (4%). The remaining categories all reported decreases, drug offences 2%, prostitution offences 32%, liquor (excluding drunkenness) 26%, trespassing and vagrancy 11%, weapons act offences 3%, good order offences 11%, stock related offences 9%, traffic and related offences 18%, and miscellaneous offences 22%. These offences (with the exception of domestic violence) are generally detected by police rather than reported by the public.
Bob Atkinson APM, Commissioner of Police

During 2010/11 natural disasters affected much of the State. Officers of all ranks and functions (including many QPS staff who are not sworn officers) in every region and command worked and assisted with the flood and disaster response. The Queensland Police Service is committed to working collaboratively with other agencies and the community to ensure the continued safety and security of all Queenslanders into the future. The positive results reported in this years Statistical Review reflect the professionalism and commitment of all members of the Service, for which I am very grateful.

Queensland Crime
The following tables provide statistics for Queensland for the 2009/10 and 2010/11 financial years, for reported and cleared offences against the person and offences against property and reported other offences. Reported offence data are presented as both numbers and rates (offences reported per 100,000 persons), together with a percentage change indicator to provide the reader with a clear and balanced picture of the level of crime in Queensland. Cleared offences are displayed as Reported and Cleared in Period and Cleared in Period, Reported Previously. The Percentage Cleared figures refer only to those offences reported and cleared in the relevant financial year. The 2009/10 statistics included in these tables (and throughout the Review) have been revised from those published in last years Annual Statistical Review and, as such, figures presented last year may differ slightly from those presented in this edition.

Crime 2010/11
Offences Against the Person
The broad offence group of offences against the person is comprised of a number of different offence categories, with the volume of offences reported differing significantly across categories. For example, assaults account for 65% of offences against the person (Figure 1) while homicide (murder) accounts for less than 1%. Thus, assault offences tend to dominate offences against the person, while homicide (murder) will have little effect on the overall total.
Sexual Offences 17%

lowest. South Eastern Region recorded the largest decrease of 11% in the period under review. Fifteen to nineteen year old females were most likely to have been victims of offences against the person in 2010/11 followed by ten to fourteen year old females. In the younger age groups (zero to nineteen years), females were more likely than males to be victims of offences against the person. From the age of twenty years, males were more likely than females to be victims. For 58% of victims of solved offences, the offenders were known to them. More males were proceeded against for offences against the person compared with females. While only 22% of offenders were female, 31% were male aged fifteen to twenty four years. The likelihood of offending peaked in the fifteen to nineteen year age group for both males and females and decreased with increasing age. Of those who were found to have committed offences against the person, approximately 56% were proceeded against through an arrest with a further 25% proceeded against through the service of a notice to appear.

Homicide (Murder)
Homicide (murder) is a small volume offence category and, as such, is subject to sizeable fluctuations from one year to the next and from region to region. The number of homicide (murder) offences decreased by 5 offences in Queensland for 2010/11 compared with 2009/10. Of the 50 homicides reported to police in 2010/11, 41 (82%) were cleared in the same period. An additional 3 offences were cleared from previous periods. North Coast Region recorded the highest increase and Northern and Southern Region recorded the largest decrease of homicide (murder) offences within the State. The highest rate was recorded by Far Northern and Northern Regions and the lowest rate was recorded by Metropolitan South Region. This year, 54% of the victims of homicide (murder) were female. The highest rate of homicide (murder) offences occurred for females in the thirty five to thirty nine year age group which

Overall, the number of offences against the person decreased by 4% in Queensland between 2009/10 and 2010/11. A total of 30,156 offences were reported to police in 2010/11, 1,300 less than the revised figure from the previous financial year. Taking into account the growth of the Queensland population, the rate of offences against the person decreased by 6% from 697 to 655 offences per 100,000 persons. Of the 30,156 offences against the person reported to police during the 2010/11 financial year, 22,146 (73%) were cleared by the end of June 2011 compared with 76% cleared the previous year. An additional 3,464 offences reported in previous time periods were also cleared during 2010/11. As with previous years, North Queensland (Far Northern and Northern Regions) recorded the highest rates of offences against the person, while Metropolitan South Region recorded the

recorded a rate of 4 offences per 100,000 persons. In 69% of solved cases, the offender was known to the victim. Males were significantly more likely than females to commit homicide (murder) (88%). In 2010/11, males aged twenty five to twenty nine and thirty five to thirty nine years were most likely to offend. In 91% of cases, the offender was proceeded against through an arrest.

to dominate this broad offence group. The number of assaults in Queensland decreased by 4% from 2009/10 to 2010/11. This equates to a rate of 423 offences per 100,000 persons in 2010/11. The overall decrease in the rate of assaults is attributable to decreases in the rate of all assault categories. Of the 19,469 assaults reported to police in 2010/11, 15,008 (77%) were cleared in the same period with a further 2,093 offences cleared from previous periods.
Reported Offences per 100000 Population 300

Other Homicide
As with homicide (murder), other homicide is a low-volume offence category. Therefore, it is subject to marked fluctuations from year to year and from area to area. The rate of other homicide offences decreased by 32% during 2010/11, as a result of decreases in attempted murder (13 offences), conspiracy to murder (2 offences), manslaughter (6 offences), and driving causing death (10 offences). Factoring in the increase of the Queensland estimated resident population, other homicide offences decreased by 33% to a rate of 1 offence per 100,000 persons. Of the 66 offences reported to police in 2010/11, 56 (85%) were cleared in the same period. Additionally, 11 offences were cleared from previous periods. Central and Southern Regions were the only regions to record an increase in the rate of other homicide offences. Central and Southern Regions recorded the highest rate per 100,000 persons for other homicide in the State. Just over two-thirds (70%) of the victims of other homicide were male with the highest rate recorded in the forty to forty four years age group. For every age group, except for those aged zero to four and twenty five to twenty nine years, males were more likely to be victims than females. In 62% of the solved cases, the offender was known to the victim. Males were significantly more likely than females to commit other homicide offences (84% of offenders were male). In 2010/11, males aged twenty to twenty four and thirty five to thirty nine years were most likely to offend. Seventy four percent of offenders were proceeded against through an arrest, while 19% were issued with a notice to appear.

Figure 2: Reported assaults, Queensland, 2006/07 to 2010/11

Higher rates of serious assault were seen in 2006/07 (Figure 2). A possible explanation for this is a broadening of the definition of serious assault to include, for example, assault of a person aged sixty years or more, assault on physically impaired people and assaulting a police officer in the execution of duty. The seasonal influence on the occurrence of assaults can be seen clearly in monthly crime trends (see page 19). These offences peak around December of each year and fall to a low around July. As with previous years, Far Northern and Northern Regions recorded the highest rates of assault in the State, despite Far Northern Region recording the largest decrease of 11%. Metropolitan South Region recorded the lowest rate. For all age groups males were more likely than females to be victims of assault. Males aged fifteen to twenty-nine years were most likely to be victims. From age twenty, the rate of victimisation for males decreased steadily. The age of victimisation for females peaked at the fifteen to nineteen year age cohort and then decreased with increasing age. For 55% of victims of solved offences, the offender was known to them.

Across all age groups, males were also more likely to commit offences of assault (74% of offenders were male). Males aged fifteen to nineteen years were most likely to offend. Of those people proceeded against, 53% were arrested and 30% were served with a notice to appear.

Robbery
A decrease of 9% in the number of unarmed robberies reported to police in 2010/11 led to an overall decrease in the number of robbery offences reported in the year under review. A total of 1,787 offences were reported to police, which equates to a rate of 39 offences per 100,000 persons. Of these, 964 (54%) were cleared in the period in which they were reported, with an additional 127 offences cleared from previous periods. The rates of robbery increased steadily since the early 1980s, peaking in 1998/99. Since 1998/99 the rate of robbery offences has been showing a decreasing trend. The rate of reported unarmed robbery recorded an 11% decrease while the rate of armed robbery recorded an increase of 7% (Figure 3).
Reported Offences per 100000 Population 30

Sexual Offences
Sexual offences are particularly affected by an unpredictable variability in the reported rates due to the fact that offences occurring decades ago are still being reported to police. As offences are counted against the period in which they are reported, rather than when they occurred, increases in crime statistics do not always equate to an increase in victimisation. The number of sexual offences reported to police in 2010/11 decreased by 7% from the number reported in the previous financial year. The number reported equates to a rate of 112 offences reported per 100,000 persons. The decrease in the rate is attributable to a decrease of 11% in other sexual offences. Of those offences reported in 2010/11, 3,854 (75%) were cleared, with an additional 884 offences cleared from previous periods. Seven of the eight regions recorded decreases in sexual offences with South Eastern Region recording the largest decrease of 26%. Metropolitan South Region recorded the lowest rate and the lowest rate. North Coast Region recorded the only increase of 6%. The Sexual Offence category is one of two offence categories for which there are more female victims than male (83% of victims were female). Females aged between ten and nineteen years were most likely to be victims of sexual offences. Females in this age group comprise 48% of total victims. For 73% of victims of solved offences, the offender was known to them. In 28% of solved cases, the offender was a family member. In total, 87 or 4% of females committed sexual offences in 2010/11. Thus, 96% of offenders were male. The age distribution of male offenders is unique for this offence type in that the distribution is almost uniform across all age groups with the exception of fifteen to nineteen year olds. The number of offenders is only slightly lower in the older age groups, with males aged fifty years and over representing 16% of all sexual offenders. For those proceeded against, 60% were arrested and 10% were served with a notice to appear.

Figure 3: Reported robbery offences, Queensland, 2006/07 to 2010/11

Robbery offences tend to occur more frequently in the south-east corner of the State as was the case in 2010/11. Northern Region recorded the largest increase of 19% and South Eastern Region recorded the highest rate of robbery in the State. North Coast Region recorded the greatest decrease of 26% and the lowest rate in the State. For every age group, males were more likely than females to be victims of robbery, with males aged fifteen to nineteen years most likely to be victims. Males were victim to robbery in 75% of all cases reported to police. For the majority of victims (81%) of solved robbery offences, the offender was unknown to them. Males were significantly more likely than females to commit robbery offences (85% of offenders were male) and 58% of total offenders were aged between fifteen and twenty four years. Of those

proceeded against for robbery offences, 82% were arrested and 8% issued with a notice to appear.

Other Offences Against the Person


The category of other offences against the person includes offences such as kidnapping and abduction, deprivation of liberty, extortion, stalking and life endangering acts. In 2010/11, other offences against the person decreased by 2% from 3,709 to 3,648 offences. When taking into account the growth of Queenslands population, the rate decreased by 4%. Of the 3,648 reported other offences against the person, 61% were cleared in the same period. In addition, 346 offences reported in previous periods were also cleared. Females represented 54% of victims of total other offences against the person. People most likely to be victims of other offences against the person were female and aged between ten and nineteen years. For 62% of victims of solved offences, the offender was known to them.

Figure 4: offences against property (%) - 2010/111

South Eastern Region recorded the highest rate of offences against property (5,668 offences per 100,000 persons) in the State, while Northern Region recorded the only decrease (6%). North Coast Region recorded the lowest rate (3,863 offences per 100,000 persons). Overall, offences against property were more likely to be committed by males (75% of offenders were male). Over one quarter (28%) of offenders proceeded against for offences against property were male aged between fifteen and nineteen years. Of the total people proceeded against for offences against property, 38% were arrested, 44% were served with a notice to appear and 13% were cautioned.

Offences Against Property


The offence group of offences against property is comprised of a number of offence categories. As with offences against the person, the contribution of each category to the total differs significantly (Figure 4). In 2010/11, other theft (excl. unlawful entry) accounted for 46% of total offences against property and was the highest in volume of the property offence categories. Unlawful entry with Intent and other property damage each accounted for 20% of offences, with fraud accounting for 8%. As such, this broad offence group tends to be dominated by other theft (excl. unlawful entry) and unlawful entry with Intent, and other property damage, with offence categories such as arson having little effect. The number of reported offences against property for the 2010/11 period increased by 6% when compared with the 2009/10 period. Factoring in the growth of the Queensland population, offences against property were reported at a rate of 4,682 offences per 100,000 persons in 2010/11, an increase of 4% from the previous year. Of all offences against property reported in 2010/11, 30% were cleared in the same period with a further 8,425 offences cleared from previous periods.

Unlawful Entry
The number of unlawful entry offences decreased by 1%. This equates to a 3% decrease in the rate once the growth of the Queensland population is taken into account. Of the 43,024 offences reported to police in 2010/11, 19% were cleared in the same period with a further 1,491 offences cleared from previous periods. The rate of unlawful entry of dwellings decreased by 2%, the rate of unlawful entry of shops decreased by 1% and unlawful entry of other premises decreased by 5%. Six of the eight regions recorded decreases, the largest of which was North Coast Region (13%). Northern Region recorded the highest rate (1,284 offences per 100,000 persons) while North Coast Region recorded the lowest rate (683 offences per 100,000 persons). South Eastern Region recorded

the largest increase of 13% in the period under review. Most unlawful entry offences were committed by young males. In fact, 91% of offenders were male and approximately 64% were male aged under twenty-five years. Of all offenders proceeded against for unlawful entry offences, 58% were arrested, 11% cautioned and 25% served with a notice to appear.

As with most offence types, fifteen to nineteen year old males were most likely to be proceeded against for other property damage offences. Only 12% of offenders were female and only 15% of offenders were aged thirty years or more. In total, 46% of offenders were served with a notice to appear, 34% were arrested, and 14% were cautioned.

Unlawful Use of Motor Vehicle


The rate of unlawful use of motor vehicle offences increased by 7% in 2010/11 which is equivalent to 823 more offences reported during 2010/11. In 2010/11, 9,776 unlawful use of motor vehicle offences were reported to police. Of these, 3,080 (32%) were cleared during this period, with an additional 414 offences cleared from previous periods (note: for recovery rates see Glossary, page 169). In 2010/11, unlawful use of motor vehicle offences were reported at a rate of 212 offences for every 100,000 persons. North Coast and Metropolitan North Regions were the only two areas to record decreases of 5% and 3% respectively. Far Northern Region recorded the highest increase of 17%, while North Coast Region recorded the lowest rate of 117 offences per 100,000 persons. Males aged fifteen to nineteen years were most likely to commit unlawful use of motor vehicle offences (40% of male offenders were in this group). Forty-five percent of all offenders were aged fifteen to nineteen years. Approximately 65% of offenders were arrested and 24% were served with a notice to appear.

Arson
Arson is the lowest in volume of the offences against property categories and, as such, exerts very little influence on the offences against property total. The number of arson offences decreased by 11% from 2009/10 to 2010/11. The rate of offences decreased by 12%, from 30 to 27 offences per 100,000 persons. Of the 1,222 offences reported in 2010/11, 204 (17%) were cleared in the same period. An additional 18 offences were cleared from previous periods. Six of the eight Regions recorded decreases with Southern Region recording the greatest decrease of 30%. Metropolitan North Region recorded the largest increase (9%), however also recorded the lowest rate (14 offences per 100,000 persons). Similar to previous years, South Eastern Region recorded the highest rate (54 offences per 100,000 persons). This year, 87% of offenders were male with fifteen to nineteen year old males being the most likely to be proceeded against for arson. Approximately 72% of offenders were arrested, 9% cautioned and 8% served with a notice to appear.

Other Property Damage


The number of other property damage offences reported in 2010/11 increased by 5% when compared to the previous financial year. The rate of offences increased by 3%, from 893 to 917 offences per 100,000 persons. Of those offences reported to police in 2010/11, 12,573 (30%) were cleared during this period, with an additional 1,225 offences cleared from previous time periods. Far Northern Region recorded the highest rate of 1,160 offences per 100,000 persons. The largest decrease was recorded by Central Region (7%). Metropolitan South Region recorded the lowest rate of other property damage offences (764 offences per 100,000 persons).

Other Theft (excluding Unlawful Entry)


The rate of other theft (excluding unlawful entry) offences increased by 12% from 2009/10 to 2010/11. This category is the highest in volume of the offences against property categories and thus exerts a significant influence on property crime as a total. In 2010/11, 98,255 other theft offences were reported to police, of which 27% were cleared during this period. A further 2,818 were cleared from previous periods. Three of the four sub-categories of other theft offences recorded increases in the rate of offences reported: stealing from dwellings (21%), steal from vehicles (14%), and other stealing (18%). In 2010/11, 73% of shop stealing offences were cleared during the 2010/11 period, making this

With Honour We Serve

13

the highest clearance rate within the other theft sub-categories. The highest rate of other theft (excluding unlawful entry) occurred in South Eastern Region which also recorded the highest increase. The lowest rate was recorded in Southern Region and Northern Region recorded the only decrease in the year under review. The proportion of female offenders for other theft was higher than for most other offence types at 36%, or just over one third. For both males and females, those in the fifteen to nineteen year age group were most likely to commit other theft offences. Arrest rates are low for this offence type at 28%, while 50% were served with a notice to appear, and 18% issued cautions. Of the 18% of offenders issues with cautions, 99% were juveniles (aged between ten and sixteen years).

Handling Stolen Goods


Handling stolen goods offences recorded a decrease in the rate of offences of 6% from 107 to 100 offences per 100,000 persons. Of the total 4,594 offences reported to police in 2010/11, 4,167 (91%) were cleared in the same period, with a further 209 offences cleared from previous periods. Far North Region recorded the highest rate of handling stolen goods offences while Metropolitan North Region recorded the greatest decrease (23%). Southern Region recorded the largest increase of 10%, however also recorded the lowest rate. As with most offence categories, males were most likely to commit handling stolen goods offences (77% of offenders were male) and males in the fifteen to nineteen year age group were most likely to offend. Offenders were more likely to be served with a notice to appear (52%) although 39% were arrested.

Fraud
Queensland recorded a decrease in the number of offences per 100,000 persons in most subcategories of fraud offences during the current period. Decreases were reported in fraud by cheque offences (26%), fraud by credit card offences (15%), identity fraud offences (28%), and other fraud offences (15%). This resulted in an overall decrease of 12% in the rate of total fraud offences. Fraud by computer was the only category to record an increase (19%) in 2010/11. Of the 16,399 offences reported in 2010/11, 11,146 (68%) were cleared in the same period with a further 2,250 offences cleared from previous periods. Central Region recorded the highest rate of fraud offences with North Coast Region recording the highest increase. Northern Region recorded the largest decrease of 34%. Historically, fraud was unique in that the age of those proceeded against tended to be older when compared with other offence types, though this trend appears to have shifted over recent years. A relatively higher proportion of females commit fraud offences compared with other offence types. Approximately 36% of offenders were female. Males aged twenty five to twenty nine years and females aged fifteen to nineteen years were most likely to commit fraud offences. Thirty four percent of offenders were arrested, while 58% were issued with a notice to appear.

Other Offences
Other offences is a broad collection of disparate offence categories. These categories are distinct from offences against the person and property in that they are generally offences detected by police rather than being reported by the public. Drug offences, traffic offences and prostitution offences are examples of this. Trends and patterns in the levels of other offences are therefore often indicative of specific initiatives of the Police Service rather than being indicative of the level of crime actually occurring. As such, increases are often seen as a positive improvement of police detection rates. In the 2010/11 financial year much of the State was affected by natural disasters, as such officers of all ranks and functions (including many Queensland Police staff who are not sworn in officers) in every region and command (including many who were off-duty) worked or assisted with the flood response. As a total, the number of other offences decreased by 9% state-wide from 172,215 offences recorded in 2009/10 to 156,571 offences recorded in 2010/11. This equates to a rate of 3,402 offences per 100,000 persons in 2010/11. All of the eight regions recorded decreases in total other offences with Far Northern Region recording the largest decrease of 20%. Rates are traditionally higher in the northern part of the State and this trend was again repeated in 2010/11. Northern Region recorded the highest rate, while Metropolitan South Region recorded the lowest.

14

Drug Offences
Decreases in the number of drug offences in three of the five sub-categories of drug offences contributed to an overall decrease of 1%. When taking into account the growth of Queenslands population, drug offences recorded a decrease of 2%. Northern Region recorded the highest rate and the largest increase of drug offences in the State. The largest decrease of 17% was recorded by Far Northern Region and Metropolitan South Region recorded the lowest rate (737 offences per 100,000 persons).

Good Order Offences


The rate of good order offences decreased by 11% from 2009/10 to 2010/11. A total of 47,809 offences were detected by police, which equates to a rate of 1,039 offences for every 100,000 persons. A decrease in three of the four sub categories resulted in the overall decrease in these offences. Metropolitan South Region recorded the largest decrease of 21% however the region recorded the lowest rate for good order offences. Higher rates are generally seen in the northern regions and this occurred again in 2010/11 with Northern Region recording the highest rate of 2,025 offences per 100,000 persons.

Breach of Domestic Violence Protection Orders


Breach of domestic violence protection orders are a breach of a court order and, as such, are classed as Regina offences; hence, the inclusion under other offences and not offences against the person. The 2010/11 financial year recorded a 6% increase in the number of breach of domestic violence protection orders. A total of 10,294 offences were reported to police, equating to a rate of 224 offences per 100,000 persons. Metropolitan Regions recorded the lowest rates of Breach of Domestic Violence Protection Order offences in the State, while the northern regions again recorded the highest. South Eastern Region recorded the largest increase of 12% and Metropolitan North Region recorded the lowest rate of 108 offences per 100,000 persons.

Traffic and Related Offences


The number of traffic and related offences decreased by 17% from 45,850 to 38,153 offences. All four of the four sub-categories recorded decreases of which the largest was a 50% decrease in interfere with mechanism of a motor vehicle offences. The number of dangerous operation of a vehicle offences decreased by 7%, drink driving offences 13% and disqualified driving offences 30%. Metropolitan South Region recorded the largest decrease as well as the lowest rate. Far Northern Region recorded the highest rate of 1,274 offences per 100,000 persons. Please note that the traffic and related offences category referred to above includes dangerous operation of a vehicle, drink driving, disqualified driving and interfere with the mechanism of a motor vehicle only. For information on Speed and Red Light Camera Notices or Random Breath Tests please refer to the traffic section on pages 141-147.

Weapons Act Offences


The rate of weapons act offences decreased by 3% from 76 offences per 100,000 persons in 2009/10 to 74 offences per 100,000 persons in 2010/11. The overall decrease is attributable to decreases in four of the five weapons sub-categories; unlawful possession of concealable firearm (8%), bomb possession (39%), possession and/or use other weapons (2%) and weapons act offences other (7%). Five of the eight regions recorded decreases in weapons act offences during the 2010/11 financial year. Far Northern and Central Regions recorded the largest decreases of 15% and 16% respectively. During 2010/11, Northern Region recorded the highest rate of 123 offences per 100,000 persons while Metropolitan South Region recorded the lowest rate of 54 offences per 100,000 persons.

Monthly Crime Trends


The graphs in this section provide monthly data for selected offence categories from July, 2001 (2001/02 financial year) to June, 2011 (2010/11 financial year), expressed as a rate, thereby factoring in the size of the Queensland population for each year. All crime statistics appearing in these graphs are comparable over the ten year period except where indicated with a break in continuity.

Annual Crime Trends


In this section, an examination of the number of selected offences per 100,000 persons is provided for a thirty year period. The rates provided in this section are based on Estimated Residential Populations, or projections thereof, at 30 June each year, provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Office of Economic and Statistical Research, Queensland. Since 1980/81, many legislative changes have occurred, and the classification, recording and reporting systems used by the Queensland Police Service have evolved. Therefore, some offence categories, for which thirty years of comparable statistics are not available, have not been included. The offence categories which have been included in this section are those that have a reasonable degree of consistency and comparability for the past thirty years. Some of these categories (such as unlawful entry and drink driving) have undergone considerable change at certain times. These breaks in continuity have been noted in the accompanying text where appropriate. Prior to 1991/92, all crime statistics produced by the Queensland Police Service were based on the date the information related to the crime was received at the Information Bureau (and its precursors) in Police Headquarters. Since 1991/92, the reference date has been the date the offence is reported to police.

2001/02, there has been a significant reduction in the rate of unlawful use of motor vehicle offences until 2009/10 with the current period recording an increase of 7%.

entry) offences was recorded from 2000/01 to 2007/08. However, the last three financial years showed a reverse in this trend by recording increases of 2% in 2008/09 and 2009/10 and 12% in 2010/11.

Fraud offences increased sharply from 1981/82 to 1987/88. The sudden decrease from 1987/88 to 1990/91 is due to a change in policy by banking institutions regarding the reporting of offences, rather than an actual reduction in offences. The figures reported for 2000/01 and 2001/02

effectively halted a steadily increasing trend evident over the last decade. Rates recorded in each year from 2002/03 to 2010/11 have continued this reversal with a 12% decrease reported for the year under review.

Analysis of the drink driving offence time series is difficult due to the many changes that have affected the overall trend (see Explanatory Notes, page 165). The graph above highlights the effectiveness of these initiatives as offences

have reduced and remained stable at around 600 offences per 100,000 persons from 1991/92 to 2000/01. In the current reporting period, a decrease of 14% was reported, following a decrease of 4% in 2009/10.

Regional Comparisons
The graphs in this section display changes in the rate of selected offences per 100,000 population from the 2009/10 to the 2010/11 financial years for Queensland Police Service regions. The benefits of these graphs are twofold the crime level of a region can be compared both with its own level in the previous financial year, and, secondly, with the crime levels of other regions. It should, however, be noted that each region faces unique policing issues. These graphs should not, therefore, be used as a comparative measure of regional performance, but rather as a guide to crime trends and patterns across the State. As with the rest of this Review, the offences per 100,000 persons calculations were performed using the Estimated Residential Population for 30 June each year, or a projection thereof, provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Office of Economic and Statistical Research, Queensland.

Victims of Crime
This section contains detailed information relating to victims of offences against the person. They do not provide a unique victim count as one person may be counted several times if they were the victim of more than one offence. There are several cases where the victim of an offence against the person is not, according to the statistical definitions used, a person. For example, the victim of an armed robbery of a bank is the banking organisation, rather than the teller, while armed so as to cause fear or alarm is commonly a Regina offence, where the Crown is deemed to be the victim. Organisations which were the victims of crime were not included in the following tables and graphs. As the graph below illustrates, females aged fifteen to nineteen years are the most common victims of offences against the person on a per capita basis. Females aged fifty-five and over are the least victimised. During 2010/11, there were slightly more male than female victims. Fifty-three percent of victims were male, while forty-seven percent of victims were female. The Australian Bureau of Statistics Population by Age and Sex, Australian States and Territories, June 2010 (3201.0) was used to calculate the number of victims per 100,000 persons. Age refers to the victims age on the date the offence was reported to police, rather than their age on the date the offence occurred.

Offender/Victim Relationships
This section provides details of the types of relationships between offenders and victims for all offences against the person. Hence, only those offences that have been cleared are included in this section. The statistics in this section are counts of victims, rather than offenders or relationships. They do not provide a unique victim count as one person may be counted several times if they were the victim of more than one offence. The relationship classifications used are derived from those used by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in Recorded Crime Victims, Australia (4510.0). As recorded in the graph below, the offender was known to the victim in fifty-eight per cent of the cases where the relationship was identified, including twenty-three per cent where the offender and victim were related. The remaining Known to Victim classification includes friends, colleagues, and both professional and other acquaintances.

Approximately 5% of robbery offences, the offender/victim relationships were listed as Not Stated due to the fact that the victims relationship was not recorded on the

administrative system. In most cases (81%), the offender was not known to the victim. Robbery is unique in that very few offences are committed by family members.

Offenders
The tables and graphs in this section provide information on persons responsible for offences. It is important to note that Queensland Police Service offender statistics are based on offence counts and do not and can not refer to individuals. Rather, offender data refers to the number of offences cleared or solved through an action against an offender. As such, offender data does not equate to a unique offender count nor does it equate to the number of offences cleared. For example, an offender charged with motor vehicle theft, unlawful entry, assault and other theft (excl. unlawful entry) would be included four times in any offender breakdown by age and sex. Only persons aged ten years and over are deemed to be offenders. Under Queensland law, children under ten are not held criminally responsible, although they may be involved in the commission of an offence. Juvenile offenders are those aged between and including ten and sixteen years. Offenders have not been included if their age or sex is not specified in Queensland Police Service records. Less than 1% of offenders have been excluded for this reason. The Australian Bureau of Statistics Population by Age and Sex, Australian States and Territories, June 2010 (3201.0) was used to calculate the number of offenders per 100,000 persons. The reference date used to generate offender statistics for the year under review is the date an action commenced. As such, offenders proceeded against for matters reported in previous periods will be included in the following tables and graphs.

District Crime
In this section, a detailed examination of reported and cleared crime is provided for the Queensland Police Services statistical regions and districts during the 2010/11 financial year. The tables include some offences where the Police District in which the offence occurred cannot be identified according to current police boundaries. There are two instances where this may occur: he offence was detected as part of a T covert operation, and the location of the offence has not currently been recorded to maintain security; and he accuracy of the address has not been T determined at the time that the data was extracted for inclusion in this publication. That is, the address was not verified. In these cases, the offences have been included in the highest hierarchical geographical level available. Therefore, police district statistics may not always sum to regional totals, or regional statistics to Queensland totals.

** Data is extracted from the Traffic Scheduling & Reporting System and Integrated Traffic Camera System. These systems are live databases which means that figures reported are subject to change based on the date and time data is extracted from the Systems. All offences detected by fixed speed and/or red light cameras do not necessarily result in the issuing of an infringement notice. Images of an offence detected by a camera go through an adjudication process by accredited Traffic Camera Office staff to assess whether there is sufficient evidence to meet legal requirements to issue an infringement notice. Should the legal requirements be met then an infringement notice will be issued. Differences observed between offences detected and notices will be the result of this adjudication process. *** Not all regions are represented in this dataset as Fixed Speed Cameras are located in four of the eight police regions.

Explanatory Notes
The interpretation of police crime statistics is not a simple task. Before an appreciation for the value and utility of crime statistics is possible, it is necessary to understand the conventions and bounds of police crime statistics as well as the various external variables which may affect them. These include the procedures used by the Queensland Police Service (QPS) in the compilation and collation of crime statistics, the definitions and rules QPS follows in producing crime statistics, and the social and environmental factors that may have an impact on the statistics. Once an understanding of the scope of police crime statistics is achieved, the value of the information they provide and its worth as a research and planning tool becomes evident. QPS strives to maintain absolute integrity and accuracy in the production of these statistics and publishes the Annual Statistical Review as its official public record of statistics pertaining to police, crime and related matters. To assist in using the information contained in this publication, a detailed summary of the above-mentioned definitions and conventions is provided over the following pages. effectiveness of the Squad rather than an actual increase in drug offences in Queensland. In order to gain a more comprehensive picture of the nature and extent of crime, QPS crime statistics should be examined in conjunction with information from other sources such as Victims of Crime surveys and criminological research.

Recording Offences
The crime statistics presented in this Review were derived from the Queensland Police Records and Information Management Exchange (QPRIME, 2007) database. After becoming aware of an offence the reporting officer contacts the Information and Communications Technology Command (ICT), by telephone as soon as practicable. A twentyfour hour data entry service exists within ICT to facilitate this process. The offence is recorded, classified and counted by the data entry staff. This process provides the benefits of reducing police officers administrative workloads as well as providing an accurate and immediate computerised record of crimes.

Reporting and Detection Rates


A major environmental factor that impacts on the use of police crime statistics as an indicator of total crime levels in Queensland is the level of reporting by the community. The rate of crime reporting may vary according to many factors. This includes the perception by members of the community as to whether an offence has actually occurred, and whether the offence is reported by the victim or a community member to the QPS. According to both Office of the Government Statistician (OGS) and Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Surveys, the most common reason for not reporting crime was that the offence was considered too trivial. The second most common reason was that the victim doubted the police could or would take action. Another factor which has a major impact on crime statistics is the priorities and activities of the QPS. An expansion of the Drug Squad, for example, may result in an enhanced ability to detect drug offences within Queensland. An increase in the number of drug offences recorded in police crime statistics may, therefore, be directly related to the

Crime Statistics Collection


Reference Period For the purposes of this Annual Statistical Review, the reference period is the financial year, 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2011. Reference Date The reference date for reported offences is the date an offence is reported to or detected by police. For cleared offences, the reference date is the date the offence was cleared by police. For offender statistics the reference date is the date an action is commenced.

Data Source
Crime All Queensland Police Service crime statistics are derived from the data contained in official crime reports. Since June 2007, official crime reports have been recorded in the Queensland Police Records and Information Management Exchange (QPRIME). Crime reports recorded between December 1994
With Honour We Serve 165

and June 2007 have been converted from Crime Recording Information System for Police (CRISP) to QPRIME. Prior to December 1994 crime reports were derived from data entered into the crime statistics database maintained by the Statistics Section of the former Information Management Bureau (and its precursors). Cancelled and Not substantiated or unfounded reports are excluded from QPS published crime statistics information. Population The population data used to calculate the number of victims and offenders by age and sex per 100,000 population was taken from Population by Age and Sex, Australian States and Territories June 2010 (ABS Catalogue No. 3201.0). All other rate calculations throughout the publication are based on a projection of the Estimated Residential Population as at 30 June 2010 (for 2009/10) and 30 June 2011 (for 2010/11) as provided by the ABS and the Office of Economic and Statistical Research, Queensland.

Caution should be exercised when using either numbers or rates alone to measure crime in specific and different areas. Rates, for example, are sensitive to small populations. Both numbers and rates of reported offences have particular uses and should be presented together to give a clear and balanced picture of the level of crime. Percentage changes are another type of rate which requires caution when interpreting. Small numbers of offences can result in large percentage changes. Comparisons of crime rates over different areas should be interpreted with great caution due to the many factors which differ from community to community. The level of crime in any community is affected by the number and composition of its population, with particular reference to age, sex, ethnicity and employment. The climate and geographical features of the community are important as is the economic structure including the local industry and the level and distribution of income. The attitude of the public toward crime can also impact upon local crime levels. Crime statistics for low volume offence categories tend to fluctuate randomly and dramatically from one year to the next. This can cause difficulties in the identification of trends and patterns in the levels of offences. It is, therefore, important to approach these low volume offence categories with caution when looking at trends and even when making comparisons across geographical areas.

Rates and Numbers


Methodology Numbers of offences are simply the number of offences occurring (recorded by police) within a specific area and for a specified period of time. These are presented as simple counts. The problem with using crime numbers to gauge the true level of crime is that areas with larger populations will presumably have higher numbers of crime than areas with smaller populations. Rates displayed in this publication are always presented per 100,000 persons. Calculation of rates allows direct comparisons of crime to be made across different geographical areas (State, regions and districts) and across time since the size of the population is taken into account in the calculation. Rates are calculated as: No. of Reported offences x 100,000 Estimated Residential Population Interpreting Rates and Numbers It is important to note that transient population groups such as tourists are not factored into the estimated population. This would have particular impact on high tourism areas where crime rates would be overestimated.

Unreported Crime
QPS crime data can only relate to the offences which have been reported to police. Obviously, there is a large proportion of crime that is never reported. Various surveys, for example, Victims of Crime Surveys and Crime and Safety Surveys, are conducted by the ABS and by QPS to determine the level of unreported crime. The reporting rate can vary dramatically across offence types. For example, approximately 95 per cent of all motor vehicle theft is reported to police whilst only 33 per cent of sexual offences are reported. It is important to keep this in mind when using crime data. Relying on reported offences only can lead to an underestimation of the true rate of victimisation.

Offence Classification
The offence categories used by the QPS for crime statistics are based on the Australian National Classification of Offences (ANCO), prepared by the ABS. ANCO was designed to provide a national

framework for classifying offences for statistical purposes. The Australian Standard Offence Classification (ASOC) has been implemented in some jurisdictions by the National Centre for Crime and Justice Statistics of the ABS, and will eventually supersede ANCO. However, the QPS crime statistics collection will continue to be based on ANCO. Crime statistics are presented under three broad offence divisions: offences against the person; offences against property; and other offences. These three primary divisions have been developed to facilitate the understanding of crime statistics by grouping similar offence categories together. Following are the offence sub-divisions located within each of these primary categories.

districts, of which there are 31 throughout the State. Finally, these districts are divided into 337 statistical divisions. Reported and cleared offence statistics are presented at State, Regional and District levels in this Review.

Counting Methodology
The counting rules used by the QPS in the collection and collation of crime statistics are based on the guidelines published in the National Crime Statistics Manual (ABS) and as amended from time to time by the National Crime Statistics Advisory Group. The national counting rule is that for each victim within a distinct criminal incident, the Most Serious Offence (MSO) per ANCO subdivision is counted. The national data set does not include victimless offences such as those detailed in the QPS division of other offences. The QPS counting rule for offences of this type is to count each distinct criminal act per criminal incident. Where the victim based rule applies, the description of a victim varies according to the type of offence. A victim may be an individual person, an organisation, a place/premise, or a motor vehicle (refer to Glossary for definition of victim). The application of the MSO rule has major implications for the recording of crime statistics. By applying the MSO rule a single criminal incident may result in a number of offences being recorded. For incidents where the same victim is subjected to multiple offences belonging to different subdivisions, one offence, the most serious, is counted within each subdivision. For example, if a person is kidnapped and then raped by two offenders, one kidnapping/abduction/deprivation of liberty and one rape would be counted.

Offences Against the Person


The offence division of offences against the person includes the following offence sub-divisions: homicide (murder), other homicide; assault; sexual offences; robbery; and other offences against the person.

Offences Against Property


The offence division of offences against property includes the following offence sub-divisions: unlawful entry with Intent; arson; other property damage; unlawful use of motor vehicle; other theft (excluding unlawful entry); fraud; and handling stolen goods.

Other Offences
The offence division of other offences includes the following offence sub-divisions: drug offences; prostitution offences; liquor (excluding drunkenness); gaming, racing and betting offences; breach of domestic violence protection orders; trespassing and vagrancy; weapons act offences; good order offences; stock related offences; traffic and related offences; and miscellaneous offences. Many offence sub-divisions are divided into offence groups and then offence sub-groups. Reported and cleared offence statistics in this publication are presented to a group level in most sections.

Exceptions to Counting Rules


The offence subdivision of sexual offences (which includes rape and attempted rape and other sexual offences) is an exception to the national counting rule. The counting rule applied by the QPS in respect of this group of offences is that for each victim the MSO per ANCO subdivision is counted on the basis of time and place. The effect of using this rule is that if a victim is subjected to numerous sexual offences over a long period of time by one offender and these actions come to the attention of police at one point in time, the MSO per separate incident based on time and place is counted. Therefore, it is only possible to identify the number of offences, not victims, of sexual offences. A count of ten sexual offences may mean that there were ten victims

Geographical Classification
Queensland crime statistics are compiled to four hierarchical geographical levels. Firstly, statistics are compiled for the State as a whole. Below this, QPS divides the state into eight statistical regions. The next geographical level is that of statistical

or that one victim was subjected to ten offences over an unspecified time period by one or more offenders. Fluctuations in the number of reported offences for this offence category must therefore be considered with caution, due to the effects of the current counting rule.

Only persons aged ten years and over are deemed to be offenders. Under Queensland law, children under ten years of age are not held criminally responsible, although they may be involved in the commission of an offence. Juvenile offenders are those aged between and including ten and sixteen years. Offenders have not been included if their age and sex is not specified in QPS records. Less than 1% of offenders have been excluded for this reason.

Victims of Crime
The Victims of Crime statistics presented in this Review are compiled on the basis of one victim per counted offence. The statistics do not provide a unique victim count. For example, where the same victim is subjected to multiple offences belonging to different offence sub-divisions within an incident, then in accordance with the MSO rule, that victim would be recorded for each most serious offence per sub-division. It is important to remember that these statistics are derived using a system whose primary function is to service operational policing. Consequently, there may be slight variations between offence and victim counts. Statistics relating to victims of offences against property are not included. This is due to the statistical definition of victim used by the QPS, that is, a victim may be an individual person, an organisation, a place or premise, or a motor vehicle (refer to Glossary). Offences included in the other offences division are also excluded, as these offences are usually deemed to be victimless offences. There are several offence groups in offences against the person where the victim may be an organisation rather than an individual person. Examples include robbery committed upon a banking institution or business, and extortion committed upon organisations. It should be noted that these offences are not included in the victim count.

Drink Driving Offences


Examples of significant events affecting the drink driving time series include: 0/12/1982 - Legal limit for blood alcohol 2 concentration lowered to 0.05%; 4/05/1985 - Legal blood/alcohol limit for 0 persons under 18 years lowered to 0.02%; 986/87 - Reduce Impaired Driving (RID) 1 campaign introduced; 1/01/1989 - Random Breath Test (RBT) 0 formally commenced; 4/10/1991 - First two Mobile Breath Stations 0 (Booze Buses) introduced.

Drug Enforcement Region


Offences detected or under investigation involving covert drug operations or sensitive issues such as sexual child abuse are not geographically classified until after the completion of all inquiries in the interest of strict confidentiality. For this reason, a temporary holding geographical classification, the Drug Enforcement Region, has been created. Offences classified to this area are included only in Queensland offence counts in this Review.

Offender Counting
Offender statistics are based on offence counts and do not and can not refer to individuals. The data refers to the number of offences cleared or solved through an action against an offender. As such, offender data does not equate to a unique offender count and nor does it equate to the number of offences cleared. For example, an offender charged with motor vehicle theft, unlawful entry, assault and other theft would be included four times in any offender breakdown by age and sex.

Other property damage - Change in Policy


In December 2001, the Service implemented a change in policy in regard to the reporting of other property damage offences. Prior to this change, the offence of wilful damage was automatically recorded in conjunction with some unlawful entry and unlawful use of motor vehicle offences. As damage to property is an intrinsic part of break and enter offences, the Service altered the policy so that the offence of wilful damage is no longer recorded with these offences.

Offence
For statistical purposes an offence is any act reported to or becoming known by the police, which they consider, prima facie, to be in breach of the criminal law. With the exception of murder, each offence count represents an actual offence, an attempted offence, a conspiracy, or the aiding or abetting of an offence. In the case of murder, these categories are distinguished.

Reported Offences
Reported offences refer to all established offences reported to or becoming known to the police within the relevant reference period.

Not Substantiated
An offence is not substantiated or unfounded when investigation has established that the alleged offence was not in fact committed. This includes a false report, a mistake in the facts as reported by the informant, or no breach of the law involved in the alleged offence.

In January 2003 it became mandatory for Queensland police officers to ask all offenders the question: Are you of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin? It is the choice of the person being asked this question to identify their origins as either of the following four: Not Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, Identifies as Aboriginal, Identifies as Torres Strait Islander, Identifies as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander. If identification has not been made, a reason is recorded within the occurrence. In the 2010/11 financial year, the indigenous status indicator has not been captured in approximately 10% of cases. In these instances, the indigenous indicator has been applied by extracting the indicator from previous identifications. When applying this methodology, the percentage of unidentified indigenous status was reduced to approximately 4%.
