Community attitudes towards reporting bushfire arson to Crime Stoppers in Victoria, 2012 – 2015: Have patterns changed? Fifth report to Crime Stoppers

13 Oct 2017
Description

This report is the fifth in a longitudinal study of reporting the crime of arson to Crime Stoppers, Victoria. While investigating the triggers for reporting firelighting, this report presents comparative data, especially that collected in 2012, in an attempt to understand reporting trends and the community responses to the raising of awareness of the importance of reporting crime to Crime Stoppers. The data is compared for the complete respondents for that year, and between the specific regions where surveying was undertaken. Finally, the report presents an exploration of how the reporting of arson may differ according to both the socio-economic characteristics of regions and the personal experience of crime in general and reporting habits around this.
