Perth Crime Map
For CPTED professionals, getting accurate and representative crime data is ALWAYS problematic. Comparative crime data (e.g. crime rate/suburb) is even more problematic.
A new source of comparative crime data for Perth, Western Australia is the Perth Crime Map.

New! Boss-Gram Newsletter
BOSS-GRAM is our free cyber-security newsletter for all managers, executives and bosses.
Why for managers, executives and bosses?
First, cyber-security is primarily a business and management issue: Management considerations include cost-benefit assessment, scale and type of cyber-risks and losses, intellectual property risks, business continuity protection, competitive advantage risk, loss of business credibility with loss of confidential information etc.
Second, IT security is no longer enough: 'Whole of business' cyber security has this year been identified as being better by most cyber-security institutes and government bodies: The reason? Cyber-criminals attack via every aspect of business front and back office processes, staff behaviours, and even the activities of organisations a business interacts with.
Third, many important cyber-security protections come from changes to business practices rather than IT: Managers and executives are the people who can change business practices to improve cyber-security.
BOSS-Gram contains succinct, practical and up-to-date cyber-security and cyber-risk information for managers and executives to make informed management decisions about cyber-security. BOSS-Gram is purposefully written in straight management English and avoids technical language.
We believe well-informed management cyber-security is important for business and for reducing cyber-risks worldwide.
Permeability and reducing crime
Recent crime research challenges the assumptions of sustainability agenda and planning policies to promote compact, high-density, mixed-used residential developments in walkable and permeable street networks close to public transport. Secondary aims are to encourage walking and the use of public transport and to reduce car-use, energy use, pollution, congestion and urban sprawl. Although permeability is assumed to represent a positive built environment feature which reduces crime by promoting more ‘eyes on the street’, a significant body of research in the field of environmental criminology challenges these assumptions.
How to use Crime Stats in Crime Risk Assessment
Crime Risk Assessments are an important step in assembling the evidence for a CPTED recommendation or report. Crime Risk Assessments are based on crime statistics for the location - usually reported crime incident data. A standardised risk format is used to show the likelihood of crimes. It can be a challenge to convert crime statistics to risk likelihood. There is a simple way...
