The report also shows how agencies have built on the financial and social investment that the government has made in recent years within our criminal justice system, including the commissioning of the Alexander Maconochie Centre, the development and implementation of the 10-year blueprint for youth justice, and the creation of a holistic support system or one-stop shop for victims of crime in the ACT.

Like all volume crime, burglary and motor vehicle theft are susceptible to fluctuation. The information in the report identifies that, while we have seen significant reductions, as I just mentioned, since the commencement of the strategy, in 2014 we saw a slight increase in burglary for the first time in three years, as well as motor vehicle theft. We need to sustain the downward trend. Work on the implementation of the strategy will be continued.

The government remains committed to ensuring that ACT residents benefit from initiatives designed to reduce property crime, and I look forward to continuing to report to the Assembly on future initiatives in relation to the delivery of this important strategy.
