My Gungahlin22 October 2012

Overall, the ACT has experienced a 16.7 per cent decrease in the total number of offences reported to police when compared with the same quarter in 2011.

Acting Chief Police Officer for the ACT David McLean said that the overall decline in the crime statistics was pleasing, but there were some suburbs that experienced an increase.

“Burglaries across the Territory declined by 2.9 per cent, but the Gungahlin district did have an increase in the number of burglaries reported. This increase was due to a spate of burglaries committed upon newly constructed houses in the new areas around Crace, Bonner and Casey,” Commander McLean said.Overall, the ACT has experienced a 16.7 per cent decrease in the total number of offences reported to police when compared with the same quarter in 2011.
