Does anyone know any accurate crime figures for the Perth suburbs, I have been looking into it as I have heard that WA has the highest burglary rate in Aus, and also has its fair share of assaults.
I have found these statistics from the WA police website (have just listed the 5 areas that we are thinking of moving to):-
Aubin Grobe - assaults 0/1000 people burglaries 2/1000 houses
Ballajura - assaults 8/1000 burglaries 20/1000
Kinross - assaults 2/1000 burglaries 5/1000
The Vines - assaults 1/1000 burglaries 9/1000
Wanneroo - assaults 4/1000 burglaries 12/1000
These results were taken for the year 2008, they seem low to me considering the things I've heard, the UK average for assault is 8/1000 people and burglaries 13/1000 people.
Can anyone shed any light on whether this is an accurate account of crime levels in Perth?
