Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research - Criminal Justice Aboriginal over-representation quarterly report: March 2021
The Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research has today launched a new statistical report designed to monitor progress towards reducing the over-representation of Aboriginal people in custody in NSW.
The report shows:
- Performance against two key indicators of Aboriginal over-representation in the justice system
- The number of Aboriginal people in custody
- The number of court appearances involving Aboriginal people
- Results for 14 secondary measures which contribute to changes in custody and court volumes.
These secondary measures include police actions, bail decisions, bail breaches, court outcomes and reoffending.
Separate reports are available for Aboriginal young people and Aboriginal adults, which can be found here.
