To implement the 49 recommendations of the review of crime and criminal justice statistics, the Crime Statistics Implementation Group has been established. One of the key outputs of this group is to produce an annual report to the Government Statistician and justice sector chief executives. This report summarises progress on recommendations and notes significant issues for justice sector agencies arising from the review of crime and criminal justice statistics.
The Crime Statistics Implementation Group is chaired by Statistics NZ, and has membership from key justice sector agencies (New Zealand Police, the Ministry of Justice, the Department of Corrections, and the Ministry of Social Development).
