LGA Crime Numbers 2008 for South Australia

Crime Mapper provides the geographic distribution of recorded crime across South Australia. Two units of measurement are reported: 1. Number of offences - provides a count of all offences listed on all incident reports recorded by South Australia Police . 2. Rate per 1,000 estimated resident population - provides the number of offences as a rate per 1,000 population residing in each given location. When using Crime Mapper it is important to understand that the statistics it contains may not provide an accurate measure of the true prevalence or incidence of crime in a community. Crime Mapper statistics represent only those offences reported to police or which come to the attention of police. They can, therefore, be influenced by a number of factors, including victim reporting rates, the identification or detection of offences by police (in the case of victimless crimes) and police interpretation and decision as to whether a crime has occurred. In addition, Crime Mapper does not include offences that are dealt with by way of expiation (e.g., speeding, littering, etc.). Please also see explanatory notes:
