Crimes rise but still safe

28 Jun 2017

Crimes in Docklands continue to increase significantly with a 57.3 per cent surge in the total crime numbers from 2015-16 to 2016-17 (year ending March).

According to the latest quarterly update from the Crime Statistics Agency, a total of 1444 crimes were committed in Docklands from 2015-16, while the latest number from 2016-17 was 2271.

Property and deception offences increased by 59.8 per cent, from 947 to 1513.

Within the property and deception offence category, the most common crime was theft, with 859 offences committed from 2016-2017. Deception had the second highest count with 448 offences.

However, less than 10 per cent of Melbourne’s crimes were committed in Docklands between March 2016 and March 2017, making Docklands a relatively safer area in the municipality.
