Crime statistics now available for each suburb

If you’ve ever wondered how many break-ins happened in your suburb last month, you can now find out with just one click.

South Australia Police has released the next step in public access to crime statistics; detailed crime statistical reporting at suburb/post code level.

Using new, advanced suburb-level crime mapping technology at https://www.police.sa.gov.au/about-us/crime-statistics-map South Australians can access the previous month’s crime statistics in any of our State’s suburbs.

Until now, the monthly crime statistics publicly available online have reflected the whole of a police local service area, which incorporates several suburbs.

Now, with the introduction of our new online crime mapping tool, statistics can be accessed at suburb level for the first time.

The interactive crime map is set to provide all South Australians with more information about the incidence of crimes against people and against property in their suburb or postcode area for the previous month.

Crimes against people and against property include break-ins, car crimes, robberies and assaults.

For those people interested in crime trends, police are working on providing crime trend data beyond a month, which will be made available in due course.

Meanwhile, for those interested in longer term trend analysis, five years of suburb-based crime data for crimes against people and against property is available at https://data.sa.gov.au/data/organization/south-australia-police
