Report

Description

From 2000 to 2002 the Australian Capital Territory experienced significant declines in the rate of burglary. Toni Makkai, Jerry Ratcliffe, Keenan Veraar and Lisa Collins examine the key factors associated with this reduction and provide a profile of recidivist property offenders in the ACT.

They find significant evidence that an ACT Australian Federal Police operation targeted at repeat offenders, Operation Anchorage, along with the detention of offenders by the courts either through remand or imprisonment, affected the burglary rate.
