To implement the 49 recommendations of the review of crime and criminal justice statistics, the Crime Statistics Implementation Group has been established. One of the key outputs of this group is to produce an annual report to the Government Statistician and justice-sector chief executives.
This second annual progress report proposes three high-priority areas for improving and developing crime and criminal justice statistics. These areas were identified by their overall importance, and ability to add long-term value.
The Crime Statistics Implementation Group is chaired by Statistics NZ, and has membership from key justice sector agencies (New Zealand Police, the Ministry of Justice, the Department of Corrections, and the Ministry of Social Development).
