Crime across most of NSW has remained stable or fallen over the last two years. The only major exception to this is stealing from a retail store (up 4.7%). Half of this increase is attributable to an increase in the theft of liquor.

Seven offences have trended down over the last 24 months. The remaining 9 offences were stable. The offences trending down were:

  • domestic violence related assault (down 3.5%)
  • break and enter - dwelling (down 7.8%)

  • steal from dwelling (down 5.7%)
