LGA Number of Offences in Victoria by Offence Type 2008 - 2017

The Crime Statistics Agency (CSA) presents statistics about the characteristics of crime recorded on the Victoria Police Law Enforcement Assistance Program (LEAP). Recorded offences include any criminal act or omission by a person or organisation for which a penalty could be imposed by the Victorian legal system. This dataset covers crime sub-categories from 2008 to 2017

For the purposes of CSA statistics, an offence is counted and included in the data where it was reported to, or detected by, Victoria Police and, was first recorded in LEAP within the reference period. Recorded offence data are compiled on the basis of the date that the offence was created on the LEAP database, rather than the date the offence was detected by, or reported to police. The create date may not be the date when the offence occurred, or the date when the offence came to the attention of police.

The crime statistics are aggregated to Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) Local Government Area (LGA) 2011 boundaries (1259.0.30.001). Please note, in order to maintain confidentiality, sensitive offence counts for subdivisions Homicide and related offences and Sexual offences with a value of 3 or less are given a value of 2 to calculate totals.
