VICTIMS OF CRIME

  • Robbery and unlawful entry with intent - Between 2001 and 2002, all three Regions recorded decreases in the rate of robbery victims and victims of unlawful entry with intent. In both 2001 and 2002, the Greater Hobart-Southern Region recorded the highest victimisation rate for these crimes.
  • Age and sex of victims - The 2002 age and sex breakdowns show that in all three Regions the majority of assault victims were male, the majority of sexual assault victims were female, and that the numbers of both male and female victims of assault were highest in the 25-34 years age group.


COMPLAINTS TO THE OMBUDSMAN
  • In 2001-02, the Office of the Tasmanian Ombudsman closed the greatest number of complaints about the administrative actions of local government authorities in the Greater Hobart-Southern Region, followed by the Northern Region and then Mersey-Lyell.
  • The Mersey-Lyell Region had the highest proportion of claims closed due to no defective administration and also the highest proportion of claims substantiated or partly substantiated.
