Crime in Orange Remains Steady

The latest report from the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research shows Orange crime is not getting worse, despite public perception of safety in Orange deteriorating. 

Crime trends over the past two years in the region have remained steady in all categories except motor vehicle theft.

Canobolas Local Area Command Superintendent, David Driver says the perception that crime was on the rise is due to the wide coverage of crime through the media.

Crime in Orange remains steady except for the 47 per cent drop in motor vehicle theft and 25 per cent drop in theft from motor vehicles.
