OUTCOMES OF POLICE INVESTIGATIONS
In 2004, nearly two-thirds of the investigations into murder (65%), attempted murder (64%) and driving causing death (62%) had been finalised within 30 days after a victim became known to police (table 11.21). Of those investigations finalised, police were most likely to have proceeded against an offender at 30 days for victims of homicide and related offences: manslaughter (100%), attempted murder (96%), driving causing death (95%) and murder (87%).
The lowest proportions of finalisations at 30 days were for victims of unlawful entry with intent (8%) and motor vehicle theft (11%). However, of those that were finalised, a higher proportion had an offender proceeded against by police ( 80% and 71% respectively).
The highest proportions of investigations finalised where there was no offender proceeded against were for victims of kidnapping/abduction (35%), motor vehicle theft (29%) and robbery (28%).
