Kevin Conolly, Member for Riverstone, has welcomed the latest NSW quarterly crime data showing 16 of the 17 major crime categories have trended down or remained stable across the state in the two years to September 2015 while only one category has risen.

The offences trending down include:

Murder (down 20.0 per cent)
Non-domestic assault (down 3.7 per cent)
Robbery without a weapon (down 19.5 per cent)
Robbery with a firearm (down 26.8 per cent)
Robbery with a weapon not a firearm (down 19.1 per cent)
Break and enter dwelling (down 5.4 per cent)
Steal from person (down 6.9 per cent)
Malicious damage to property (down 7.0 per cent)

Kevin Conolly said the latest results are testament to the hard work of the NSW Police Force.

"I'm pleased to see most of the major crime offences across our state are trending down or have remained stable," Kevin Conolly said.

"The NSW Government will continue to ensure the NSW Police Force has the tools needed to crack down on crime and keep the people of NSW safe," Kevin Conolly said.

In the electorate of Riverstone there are some positive downward trends in crime including:

Assault - non-domestic violence related is down 5.6 per cent
Malicious damage to property is down 9.5 per cent
Steal from Retail Store rose by 5.3 per cent in the two years to September 2015 state-wide.

"This is concerning for local retailers leading into the Christmas period and I'd encourage shop owners and managers to review their security measures," said Kevin Conolly.
