Property crimes continued a declining trend in victimisation. Motor vehicle theft (284 victims per 100,000 persons) had the lowest rate since national reporting began in 1993 (637 victims per 100,000 persons). The victimisation rate for unlawful entry with intent also continued to decrease, with the rate of 1,031 victims per 100,000 persons in 2009 being the lowest in the last 10 year period. The victimisation rate for other theft in 2009 (2,154 victims per 100,000 persons) was also the lowest rate in the last 10 year period, and is considerably lower than when national reporting began for that offence in 1995 (2,715 victims per 100,000 persons).
