Statistics about the outcomes of police investigations describe the status of the processes of police investigations that are initiated following the reporting or detection of an offence. At any point in time, the status of investigations can include:
In 2003 a higher proportion of offences against the person (murder, attempted murder, assault, sexual assault, kidnapping/abduction and robbery) reached a finalised status within 30 days of initiation of the investigation than was the case for offences against property (UEWI and motor vehicle theft offences). Similarly, the proportion of offenders proceeded against was higher for offences against the person than for property offences (table 11.16). Over half of all finalised sexual assault investigations resulted in no offender being proceeded against.
