Northern Territory Crime Statistics

The Northern Territory crime statistics are prepared by the Department of the Attorney-General and Justice using data recorded by the Northern Territory Police. The statistics on this site are updated on a monthly basis. Earlier quarterly crime statistics are available on the Department of the Attorney-General and Justice website.

NT Crime Statistics are released on the third Friday of each month at 10:30am.


Following consultation with the Criminal Justice Research and Statistics Unit and for transparency, Northern Territory Government has decided to publish the March 2024 crime statistics with the following disclaimer.  Since implementation of SerPro in November 2023, it has now been identified that entry of the data used for crime statistics generally happens later in the investigation process when compared to the previous system PROMIS. This means that monthly data takes longer to settle and may take several months to reflect the actual numbers of offences recorded by police. For this reason the monthly crime statistics should be reviewed with caution and will be marked as provisional until we know that data collection is substantially complete.
