Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 10 (19 October) . . Page.. 3373..
(2) What has been the percentage of "clean-ups"for example, apprehensions and/or prosecutions in each of the categories in part (1);
(3) Are any additional policing measures being considered for the area in light of the above.
Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) In the period late March to late September 2006 there were 62 burglary / property theft offences recorded in the Manuka area; 17 property damage offences which includes vandalism and five assault offences. There were no armed robbery offences during the six month period. While any one particular incident may involve a number of offences, the examination of specific individual offender / offence data is overly time and labour-intensive and has therefore not been undertaken.
(2) During this six month period, approximately 10% of the aforementioned offences resulted in apprehensions. While prosecutions and corresponding results data may be available to ACT Policing, the processes involved and time required to adequately extract and examine this data is too prohibitive in this instance.
(3) ACT Policing employs a priority response model when responding to crime. Additionally, ACT Policing utilises an intelligence-led methodology to identify and target crime 'hot spots' in the ACT. In this regard, reports from members of the public are important and assist police to target potentially problem areas. Police presence in the Manuka area in particular, will therefore vary according to both priorities and intelligence at any given time.
