Simon Corbell has announced great victories in the war on crime as outlined in the latest Criminal Statistical Profile:

“In the year to September 2013, robbery offences have decreased by 37%, motor vehicle theft has decreased by 32%, burglary and weapons offences have both decreased by 16%, sexual assault has decreased by 15%, and assault and public order offences have both decreased by 8%,” Mr Corbell said.

While most results trend positively downward, the government recognises that crime rises and falls. Currently there is a 15% decrease, year on year, in sexual assault offences (372 offences in the year to September 2013 compared to 437 offences in year to September 2012). In contrast, there has been a 12% increase in sexual assaults over the longer, five year period.
