(4) Police routinely conduct mobile vehicle patrols and foot patrols through the car parks and shops located at the Charnwood Shops. ACT Policing has also recently implemented the Region Proactive Team which will from time to time supplement Belconnen patrol resources currently conducting patrols of this area. Victims of burglaries are offered crime prevention advice by attending members.

(5) Police have promptly attended each of the incidents that have occurred at the Charnwood Newsagency. Police have offered crime prevention advice to the proprietor and AFP Forensic members have attended and conducted analyses of the crime scene with no forensic evidence located. Operation Halite has also been notified in relation to the burglaries reported to Police.

During a recent burglary, images of the alleged offender(s) were captured on a security camera. Enquiries are continuing in relation to identifying the offender(s).

(6) ACT Policing Operations Monitoring and Intelligence Support has developed profiles of possible offenders in relation to these offences.

(7) (a) & (b)

No. Insufficient evidence has been obtained to identify offenders and secure convictions in relation to these particular offences. While ACT Policing records do not indicate apprehensions in relation to these specific offences, it is possible that the offenders have been apprehended and dealt with in relation to other matters.

Hospitals—ambulance bypass statistics
(Question No 775)

Mr Smyth asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 16 November 2005:

(1) Why does ACT Health no longer collect data on the number of patients affected by bypass at Canberra’s hospitals;

(2) Why was this information available previously but not available now;

(3) Why does the Minister no longer see it as important to monitor the number of patients affected by bypass at Canberra’s hospitals.

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

(1) ACT Health records show that patient level data on the number of patients affected by bypass at Canberra’s hospitals has not been collected on a routine basis.

(2) This information, when available previously, has been snapshot data provided by the individual Emergency Departments.

(3) The department monitors the number of patients affected by load sharing.

It is difficult to collect patient level load sharing data as patients present by many modes.

A more appropriate measure of by-pass is load sharing hours. ACT Health collects and monitors this data.
