Monthly and annual crime statistics

Note: Reporting changes

WA Police is changing the way it reports on crime statistics to improve the quality of our statistical data and align our recording and reporting practices with national standards.

Website changes will soon include more detail about certain crime categories, enhanced analysis of the data and better explanatory information. WA Police is also moving from monthly to quarterly reporting of our crime statistics, as recommended by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The reports will still contain month by month data, but they will be released quarterly.

The figures for June 2017 will be the last to be reported on a monthly basis, and the first quarterly report is scheduled for release soon, capturing the months of July, August and September.
