The only safe place in all of Australia is Sydney, yea the "dangerous city" is actually the safest in the whole nation. Live anywhere else then god help you.

I have lived in Alice for 25 years. In that time I have also moved around the country, and seen many safe country towns turn to crap. Alice still has a beating heart. Amazing local events and people, and awesome scenery. Cultural links run deep, and is incredible to acknowledge and learn.

Crime in Alice Springs - especially committed by so-called 'untouchable' youth is completely out of control. There is no day go by without cars being stolen, private houses and businesses being broken into and ram-raids are also nearly daily occurrences. The police force are unable to do much about it as the politicians are unwilling to give them the tools to deal with this crime wave. Supermarkets and other retail businesses are unable to defend themselves against blatant and public stealing, with kids filling their hands, pockets and even bags with goods and just walking out the doors. Touching, stopping or even apprehending any of these young criminals, can let you get yourself arrested or even convicted and jailed. Arson is also on the increase as is domestic violence, assaults, sexual assaults and commercial break-inns. There is nothing really stopping the crims.

Alice Springs is a fuckin hole. Crime violence drunkenness and anti social behaviour are totally out of control there. Most people living there have been victims of crime and most businesses there have been broken into and robbed multiple times. It is dangerous and a lot of people have left the city and more people are leaving the city.

while I appreciate the data being provided for crime in Alice Springs I find some unusual overall trends when reading this data sheet.

I am concerned the percentage data doesn't match up on this info sheet, why would the "worries" numbers be so high, withstanding "other" worries such as;
Safety walking alone during daylight 48.33 Moderate
Safety walking alone during night 12.11 Very Low

Based on this set of [Safety walking alone] entries alone it seems the data is skewed, knowing this data goes against the most common data trends that criminality is more prevalent at night, this data alone would go against all matters of understanding the criminality and trends behind common crimes.

Unless the criminality in Alice Springs are so very much different than compared to other locations worldwide, I think a lot of the data on this site has been allowed to be arbitrarily populated by people that are not necessarily basing their input to actual events, alternately it seems to me the entered data more reflects fear mongering.

Possibly I do not understand the base from which scaling used to present the percentages.

Has any of the data here been entered based upon police reports ? i.e numbers of reported crimes versus population and percentages

just my opinion the data here does not seem to weighted on an understandable scale
