Survey: How Do NZers Understand the BPS Crime Targets

Rethinking Crime & Punishment - Survey: How Do New Zealanders Understand the Better Public Service Crime Reduction Targets and Progress Results


On the 28th April. Justice Minister Judith Collins announced that the latest Justice sector Better Public Services results for reducing crime and re-offending, were the best quarterly results since the targets were set. The Better Public Services (BPS) targets set a goal of a 15 per cent reduction in total crime by June 2017, compared to baseline figures from June 2011.

The latest Justice sector Better Public Service results showed that the total crime rate has reduced by 14 per cent between June 2011 and December 2013, that the youth crime rate had dropped by 27 per cent, violent crime was down 10 per cent and overall re-offending was down by 11.7 per cent.

Rethinking Crime and Punishment has decided to conduct a survey to find out how the public interpret both the Better Public Services targets, and the progress update.

The survey will take about 5 minutes, and can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DCGNNRH

Please complete it, and forward it on to others who might be interested in completing it. The results will be published on our website, once we have completed the survey.

In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
