OVERVIEW

This chapter presents national statistics about offenders aged 10 years and over who were proceeded against by police during the period 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014. The statistics provide a profile of the principal offence for which an offender was proceeded against and the characteristics of the offender (e.g. age and sex).

There were a total of 405,692 offenders proceeded against by police in Australia during 2013-14. This represented a 4% (14,508 offenders) increase from 2012-13, and equated to a national offender rate of 1,997 offenders per 100,000 persons aged 10 years and over in 2013-14. (Table 1)

Certain offences are excluded from the Recorded Crime - Offenders collection. For further information about the scope and counting methodology of the collection refer to paragraphs 3-16 of the Explanatory Notes.
