Attorney-General Simon Corbell is breaking out the bubbly  over the latest crime statistics:
New figures showing a continued decrease across a range of crimes in the ACT, including public order offences such as drunk and disorderly behaviour being down 22% were welcomed today by Attorney-General, Simon Corbell.
The December 2012 Criminal Justice Statistical Profile, tabled in the Legislative Assembly today, also showed reductions in property crime with property damage down 18%, burglary/break and enter down 14% and robbery down 11%.
“Six months on from the release of the ACT Property Crime Reduction Strategy 2012-15, these results are a clear reflection of the Government’s collaborative steps towards making Canberra a safer place to live,” Mr Corbell said.
“A central component to this strategy is the multi-pronged approach delivered by ACT Policing to reduce volume crime. This includes intelligence led targeting of known offenders, raising community awareness and proactively patrolling public places to prevent property crime.
