Crime rise

02 Jul 2019

Latest crime statistics released have revealed that crime in Docklands is on the rise.

The figures from the Crime Statistics Agency (CSA), which tracked crime statistics between April 2018 and March 2019, recorded a total of 2,113 offences in postcode 3008; up from 1,875 the previous year.

Property and deception offences (1,223), drug offences (202) and public order and security offences (234) were up from last year. However, crimes against the person (287) saw a decrease.

This follows an increase in crime across the state, with statistics showing that criminal incidents recorded Victoria-wide have risen by two per cent overall. A total of 387,157 criminal incidents were recorded; an increase from 379,396 incidents the previous year.

Assaults are up 3.6 per cent, robbery is up 6.4 per cent and drug use and possession is up 12 per cent.

Alleged offender incidents recorded by Victoria Police continued to increase in the last 12 months up by 6.9 per cent to 178,731. This is a 45.2 per cent increase in the last 10 years and is the highest number on record for the CSA data, which goes back to 2004.
