Research output: Contribution to journalNewspaper ArticleProfessional


Another day, another crime, welcome to Queensland. The Queensland Crime report was released last week by the state government, some 10 months overdue.

Perhaps it is little surprise that the government was not keen to share the latest crime data. Reported crime for 2019/20 increased by 2 per cent, the crime rate was up by 0.3 per cent.

In fact, over the last nine years, the Queensland crime rate has risen 15.4 per cent. Compare this to Victoria which had a crime increase of only 9 per cent over a similar period
