Crime statistics

What types of crime statistics are you interested in?

1. Latest NSW crime report

Every three months BOCSAR publishes a report showing crime trends for all of NSW, plus each region and Local Government Area (LGA). For our latest report visit our recorded crime reports page.

2. Crime Mapping Tool

Visit our interactive Crime Mapping Tool and prepare your own tailored crime report showing the latest maps, graphs and data on crimes, victims and offenders in NSW LGAs, suburbs or postcodes.  

For an online demonstration on how to use our Crime Mapping Tool, see our YouTube tutorial.

3. Excel files and datasets

Do you want to crunch your own data?  BOCSAR provides a collection of crime, court and custody datasets. This page contains a collection of significant crime, court and custody datasets compiled by the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research. Most are updated annually or quarterly. They are intended for use by people who want to perform their own analyses.

*Note: prior to June 2021 there were three additional crime tools available providing data for Local Government Areas on crime trends, crimes by premises and LGA crime rankings. These tools are no longer supported; this information is available in the Crime Mapping Tool.

BOCSAR is happy to answer requests for crime information by phone, fax or email and can make reasonable adjustments on request to accommodate the needs of persons with a disability. Please contact us for further details:
