Simon Corbell has announced a new crime map:
Mr Corbell launched ACT Policing’s latest web tool today at the ActewAGL Royal Canberra Show and said it was a great way to provide the community crime statistics by suburb, draw comparisons between suburbs and view crime trends over the past five years in a quick, easy and accurate way.
“It is important for the community to have access to accurate data on crime trends in a user-friendly format, and these maps make it easier to for people to understand crime trends in their area,” Mr Corbell said.

“Property crime is an area of criminality that is a concern to Canberrans, and the latest report card on policing services in the Territory shows a significant downward trend.
“Over the 2010-11 financial year, motor vehicle theft is down 37 per cent, burglary down 32 per cent and robbery down 22 percent.
“This is evidence that having a single source of data can allay misconceptions and fears about crime in our community.”
The maps are up on the ACT Policing website
