Crime-car re-birthing

(Question No 498)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 18 August 2005:

(1) How many incidents of car re-birthing have been identified in the ACT during (a) 2001-02, (b) 2002-03, (c) 2003-04 and (d) 2004-05;

(2) How many offences have been recorded for car re-birthing in the ACT during each of the years listed in part (1);

(3) How many charges or convictions have there been for car re-birthing in each of the years listed in part (1).

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The term 'car re-birthing' is an anecdotal reference to the re-identification of stolen motor vehicles. Car re-birthing may involve the commission of numerous offences dependant on the circumstances of particular incidents. There is no specific offence category of 'car re-birthing'. In recent months however, ACT Policing's collegiate response incorporating ACT Road User Services, NSW Road Traffic Authority and state police jurisdictions has resulted in two arrests and the seizure of five vehicles for related offence types.

(2) Refer to the answer to question 1.

(3) Refer to the answer to question 1.
