Description:

The number of recorded criminal damage offences (ICCS 121) per 100,000 people.

Numerator: An Garda Siochana, 2010
Denominator: CSO, 2010

 

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.

Date data covers:
01/01/2010 to 31/12/2010

Indicator numerator:
Number of recorded criminal damage offences

Indicator denominator:
Mid-year population estimate

Cautionary notes:
The indicators are not directly comparable between Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland as criminal damage consists of different offences in Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland. 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.
