Share Canberra's trusted news:
WITH the third quarter crime statistics available to play with we dug in a little bit to see which parts of Canberra skew towards which crimes.
In alphabetical order here they are.
Belco scored highly for traffic offences, sexual assault, “other offences”, and robbery.
Gungahlin is a somewhat surprising outlier for “Offences against a person” which covers kidnapping as well as threats and harassment.
The Inner North is a bit of a crime hot spot which playing host to the Civic nightlife undoubtedly contributes to.
Leading categories included assault, sexual assault, burglary, “other offences”, and robbery.
While not boasting the North’s vibrant nightlife Tuggers still manages to stand out for property damage, motor vehicle theft, and theft.
Pleasingly there were no homicides in the last quarter despite considerable provocation.
