Summary

Abstract

A major challenge facing the Bureau is improving the quality of the recorded crime data received from NSW Police.

One strategy for meeting this challenge is a recorded crime audit program to (1) identify possible changes in recording procedures affecting crime levels, (2) identify possible under-recording of crime and (3) assess the quality of data being recorded by Police.
