Summary

Aim

This report presents data on crime reported to, or detected by, the NSW Police Force from January 1995 to December 2020, with a focus on the statistical trends for the 24 months ending December 2020. Note that, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, social isolation measures were introduced in NSW in the second half of March 2020 and many of these restrictions had began to ease from June 2020 onwards. The data were extracted from the Computerised Operational Policing System (COPS) of the NSW Police Force in February 2021.
