CRIME DATA TOOL
Police have launched a new online tool available for the public to access police crime data. It captures detailed data about numbers of offenders and victims by time, place, gender, ethnicity and age, without identifying individuals. Deputy chief executive for strategy Mark
Evans says this is the first effective tool that allows police to report recorded crime data in an easily accessible format online. More data is expected to be rolled out in 2017. Visit policedata.nz to access the online tool.
