The 2010 NSW crime statistics will be released soon (late April 2011). This background briefing session by Dr Don Weatherburn (Director, NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research) and Jessie Holmes (Project Officer, NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research) provides a detailed understanding of reporting of crime, the limitations of crime statistics, and ways of interpreting and reporting crime data. This event aims to help equip journalists and commentators to understand crime data in all of its complexity. Journalists, journalism students, criminology students and those generally interested in crime data were encouraged to attend this event.|
