Victoria's crime rate on the rise again
The Victorian crime rate has increased again, with police saying it's due in large part to increased reporting of family violence.
Overall crime went up nearly 8 per cent last year compared to the year before.
Family violence offences increased by almost 40 per cent, drug offences were up 17 per cent and there was a 15 per cent jump in assaults.
The statistics compare the 12 months to December 2012 with the 12 months to December 2011.
Police Minister Peter Ryan maintains Victoria is a safe place to live despite the increase and rejects claims the government's law and order policies aren't working.
"Across the spectrum of things we are doing all we can as a government to address this. The police of course, they have many more police out there" he told 3AW News.
"Detected crime is driving a lot of this so we are seeing what we are seeing but the government if intent on its course" he said.
DEER PARK: Detectives from Keilor Downs Embona are appealing for public assistance following an armed robbery at a service station in Deer Park. The man approached the counter, produced a knife and made a demand for cash.

If I am not mistaken coppers have been campaigning for more wages than means something is missing somewhere. Their job? what job?rob Friday 1 March, 2013 - 12:21 PM
Naa, not real. Just ask Tony LeG. In fact coppers sent him on holidays and pretend he is taking little bit longer to get back.Kirk Friday 1 March, 2013 - 12:08 PM
So to anticrime Friday 1 March, 2013 - 8:47 AM; given there hasn't been any reports of the data collection methodology being changed one can only assume the same misreporting is continuing?
Or that it never existed in the first place.
And if it does exist why did your wife do it? Doesn't that means she supports misreporting?PH Friday 1 March, 2013 - 11:22 AM
Simple solution More Speed camera's to boost the revenue pot to catch all those criminals doing 3 kph over the limit on our freeways. ( oh I forgot these speed camera's are in black spot areas only)Harry Brown Friday 1 March, 2013 - 8:50 AM
