Violent crimes are any crime where the victim is harmed by or threatened with violence, such as murder, rape, robbery, and assault. Property crimes are instances where the victim's property is stolen or destroyed, without the use or threat of force against the victim. The two charts below present headline statistics on these two categories of crime, while the sections below provide further detail.
It is important to note that data below does not include instances where threat or force is used against the victim, even if the circumstances are similar, as these would be classified as violent crimes. For example, the data on snatch theft does not include instances where the victim is injured, as this would then be classified as a robbery.
