The Queensland Police Service launched online statistics portal giving citizens quick and easy access to crime statistics from the past 13 years on their computers.


The internally-developed portal offers information on crimes such as robberies, homicides, assaults, arson, and fraud. Users can search for relevant statistics by their postal code, name of their area or suburb, type of offence, and time period.


The statistics are overlaid on a map of Queensland, giving users a great visual understanding of high and low crime areas. The portal also offers data analysis tools such as graphs and density charts.


Through the portal, the police department of Queensland aims to encourage users to become familiar with their area and engage in appropriate crime prevention strategies in partnership with the police to ensure a safer community.


“This portal allows Queenslanders easy access to what is happening in their neighbourhood from their desktop computer, smart phone or tablet”, said Police Commissioner Ian Stewart. He stated that the portal would revolutionise the way the public has access to crime information.


The information offered through the portal will be updated every night, and will be one week in arrears.
