The Crime Statistics Agency is committed to publishing a broad range of free data on our website. If you have a specific data requirement, we may be able to provide customised information as part of our consultancy services.
To submit a data request or to speak to one of our staff about what we can offer please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please allow, at minimum, 5 business days for your data request to be actioned by the CSA. Where possible the CSA will provide data within this time frame. At peak times, such as the lead up to regular quarterly data releases , there may be delays in data provision.
For data requests that incur a fee the CSA will begin working on your data request as soon as an agreement to proceed is received by the CSA. Then, depending on the complexity of the request, the data will be made available to the client as soon as practicably possible.
Please note that the CSA is currently experiencing significant service demands and cannot guarantee short turnarounds in the provision of customised data.
