A cool interactive website, that shows crime by neighbourhood, or street level.

Handy for those buying homes, or renting a new place.

I think I'll stay away from northlands mall - everywhere else in Papanui is safe but that area isn't.   Seems malls bring crime into safe areas

Thats because theres more reported crime in public areas and shopping centres. 

 

There is a lot of crime that goes unreported. Crime is everywhere.

Yep it's sad to see the amount of crime here.

 

A friend who is a policeman tells me a lot of the crime, is crime of opportunity.

 

People leaving doors unlocked, windows open with no stays or security latches, no security lights, leaving a door with a screen locked, but the other door wide open.

lived in south auckland all my life (34 years), robbed once when I was a kid (14" crt tv stolen when we were at dinner) about 25 years ago.  6 or so years after that a car was broken into in our driveway and stereo stolen.  since then nothing. having said that, I do live in a suburb that has one bridge going into it which has a security camera on it.  so yeah fairly safe. 

 

but by going by that, most of auckland looks crazy bad.   so take it with a grain of salt.

Pet peeve but its a burglary not a robbery, unless there was a threat of violence or similar from an actual offender its not a robbery (a favourite misconception that Stuff likes to perpetrate).

Are the stats able to be seen when the population of the area is taken into account?

From 30 November 2016 NZ Police is providing easy access to Police crime data through a number of interactive reports that can be accessed from this page. Data will be updated in these reports on the last working day of every month.

Yea, without adjusting for population density the highly populated areas will tend to look worse.

Handy?

We bought in Ranui.

 

Been here 7 years. Every neighbour has been burgled. We haven't.

 

 

 

Stats don't necessarily mean anything.

Of course you don't burgle your own house, just your neighbours!!!!

Only joking.
