Abstract

A realistic picture of the level of crime in our community is essential if we are not to form our social defence policies in a vacuum. Our knowledge of the extent of reported crime is now fairly detailed and this new study by Professor Congalton and Mr. Najman of the "dark area", un-reported crime, helps to complete the picture.
