Description:

Incidents of criminal damage (ICS 121) recorded and detected per 100,000 people.

Numerator: An Garda Siochana, 2012
Denominator: CSO, 2012

 

Where a Garda Division consists of two administrative counties, each administrative county’s value is assumed to be equal to its Garda Division’s value. This will mask any administrative county variation within that Garda Division.

In 2006 the CSO assumed responsibility for the publication of recorded crime statistics from An Garda Síochana. Prior to this, recorded crime statistics were published as part of the Crime Statistics section of Garda Annual Reports. An Garda Síochána ceased including this section in their annual reports from 2006, in recognition that the CSO was to assume this responsibility.

 

In November 2014, the Garda Inspectorate published a report called “Crime Investigation” which raised serious concerns about the recording of crimes on the Garda PULSE (Police Using Leading Systems Effectively) system. Since PULSE is used to produce CSO (Central Statistics Office) recorded crime statistics, the CSO could not continue to publish official crime statistics without a full review. The CSO then began a comprehensive review of the accuracy of Garda Síochana crime data.

The findings from the review indicated some issues with the way crime is recorded by An Garda Síochana, hence the publication of recorded crime statistics was temporarily suspended by the CSO to carry out the review. At the end of June 2015 the CSO has decided to resume publication of recorded crime data, albeit advising users to consider these issues when interpreting crime statistics.

Cautionary notes:
Where a Garda Division consists of two administrative counties, each administrative county’s value is assumed to be equal to its Garda Division’s value. This will mask any administrative county variation within that Garda Division. CSO now have responsibility for reporting crime data and have developed a new classification system for offences called the Irish Crime Classification System (ICCS). In November 2014, the Garda Inspectorate published a report called “Crime Investigation” which raised serious concerns about the recording of crimes on the Garda PULSE (Police Using Leading Systems Effectively) system. Since PULSE is used to produce CSO (Central Statistics Office) recorded crime statistics, the CSO could not continue to publish official crime statistics without a full review. The CSO then began a comprehensive review of the accuracy of Garda Síochana crime data. The findings from the review indicated some issues with the way crime is recorded by An Garda Síochana, hence the publication of recorded crime statistics was temporarily suspended by the CSO to carry out the review.
