In 2005-2006, ACT Policing achieved its first tier targets for Categories 1, 2 and 3 by considerable margins and the result for Category 4 responses was very close to target.

A range of factors can impact on the ability of police to respond to incidents within particular time-frames, including attendance at higher priority incidents already in progress. Nonetheless, the failure to achieve tier two targets is of concern to the Government and ACT Policing. The Ministerial Direction issued in July 2006 requires ACT Policing to increase its capability to respond to incidents reported by the public. Utilising additional resources provided by this government, the Chief Police Officer has implemented a number of strategies to improve police responsiveness in 2006-2007 and beyond.

Dr Foskey asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, on 14 December 2006:

In relation to data on page 12 of the 2005-06 ACT Policing annual report which shows that despite the number of total offences going down 1%, the clear-up rate dropped from 35.0% to 30.9%, with greater police staffing, and fewer offences why does the clear-up rate drop.

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

Clear-up rates are impacted by a number of factors, including the type of offence, the complexity of the required investigations and the preparedness of offenders to admit to additional offences. There is no necessary correlation between offence numbers and clear-up rates.

Policing—community perceptions

(Question No 1456)

Dr Foskey asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, on 14 December 2006:
