NATIONAL CRIME STATISTICS UNIT (NCSU)
The NCSU has previously sought and obtained in-principle Board approval for the development of statistics on indigenous victims and offenders. Discussions have now been initiated with Queensland Police Service and the Northern Territory Police Service for projects to establish indigenous data collections.
The Board also considered a proposal from the NCSU to establish a national working group to agree on a minimum dataset for illicit drugs and determine police agency implementation costs for this dataset. It was agreed that the NCSU (and through the Unit, the ABS generally) should be invited to participate in an existing working group under the auspice of the Australasian Centre for Policing Research.
In addition to this, the NCSU has been involved in a number of other activities, which include participation in the Police Working Group meetings, input into the Report on Government Services 2000 and continued liaison with other National Common Police Services.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
