Queensland Police Service Annual Statistical Review reinstated

The reinstatement of the Queensland Police Service Annual Statistical Review is a welcome move.  Controversy raged when the former government abolished the Review after 2012, and then made exaggerated claims about crime having been out of control under the previous ALP government.

Readers need to wary of misinterpreting the statistics, some of which are the result of reported crimes, and some the result of an increase in police activity in particular areas.  But the publication of the annual snapshot of crime in Queensland should prevent exaggerated claims being made in future.
