Statistics about crime and justice include the number of apprehensions by and crimes recorded by the New Zealand Police, prosecutions and convictions in the criminal courts, the types of sentences imposed, and information on the number of people who are in prison or serving community-based sentences.
The 2012 Calendar year tables for recorded crime, conviction and sentencing, and child and youth prosecutions, have been published. This information is provided by New Zealand Police and the Ministry of Justice, and is updated biannually.
This is the first time these tables are available on NZ.Stat. NZ.Stat has replaced Table Builder, which was the previous web tool for customising tables. See the NZ.Stat homepage for more information.
