Crime mapping: adding value to crime prevention and control

Although most of Australia is comparatively safe, the incidence of crime is much greater than it was 20 years ago. Criminal activity hurts and outrages people, and costs the community billions of dollars. Most places have no crime, and most crime is highly concentrated in a relatively small number of places. Local government is well placed to address issues of crime prevention and community safety. It can be a catalyst for change and a vehicle for the establishment of partnerships with other key agencies.
