Is there a place that I can get Australian crime data? I was hoping to get a database (or at least be able to crawl such a page) where it is in the format of: [date, incident, location].

The closest that I got to was the Institute of Criminology which has aggregated data and some figures http://www.aic.gov.au/statistics.html. There is also this map: http://crimetool.bocsar.nsw.gov.au/bocsar/ which is clearly querying some database, but I don't know of the API or where the database is.

  • for non-aggregate, incident-level data you may have better luck with individual police departments rather than national level agencies. data.gov.au may be a place to start – philshem Jul 12 '16 at 18:16
