ANSWER


Answered on 20/10/2005

The following statistics for the 2003-04 and 2004-05 financial years were sourced from IJIS as at 29 August 2005. The numbers are generated from the proceeding population based on the Identification Justice Information System (IJIS) person identification number, case identification, and apprehension date. A proceeding represents a time (date) on which a person is proceeded against by police. For example, a person proceeded against, for multiple offences in one day, is counted once, and a person proceeded against, for multiple dates, is counted once on each of those dates.
