Crime Statistics in Victoria

Security leaders can benefit by understanding local crime statistics in the assessment of risk. The Victoria Police CSA (Crime Statistics Agency) provide excellent data including an ability to profile specific areas.

The LEAP (Law Enforcement Assistance Program) is a state-wide database that provides trends associated with all crimes reported to Victoria Police.

There are in excess of 5000 individual statutory and common law offences recorded on LEAP which have been grouped into 27 broad offence categories. These categories are further subdivided into four general classes of Crime Against the Person, Crime Against Property, Drug Offences and Other Crime. Offences dealt with by way of penalty notice and/or traffic offences are not recorded on LEAP and are not included in the official crime statistics.
