ALL major types of crime in NSW except fraud have either fallen or remained stable in the two years to September, latest crime statistics show.
Despite constant reports of gang-related shootings in Sydney, the latest quarterly crime report released on Thursday by the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research show shooting incidents have returned to their long-term average.
Recorded drug possession offences showed a lift but the bureau says those increases could be due to more intensive law enforcement rather than increased drug use.
The figures show fraud offences over the period increased by 20.7 per cent.
Most of that increase came from unauthorised use of credit cards and bank cards, while failing to pay for petrol from service stations accounted for six per cent of the increase. Eight of the major criminal offences showed significant downward trends.
These included non-domestic assault, robbery without a weapon, break and enter offences, motor vehicle theft, steal from motor vehicle, steal from person and malicious damage to property.




"Across NSW, over the five years to September 2013, violent offences have decreased on average each year by 1.9 per cent," he said in a statement.
"These statistics highlight how police are doing a fantastic job targeting people associated with gun crime and are getting in their faces every day."

And here in the states, the right continues to preach that it's impossible to stop gun violence ... other than by everybody owning a gun. Their campaigns, by the way, are funded by weapons manufacturers, what a happy coincidence!

And here the Media keep saying its on the rise, using the loop hole that yes technically during any given year the amount of crimes goes up because if your counting you normally increase the number (pretty rare that crime is 'undone' to the point of not being counted so you count will pretty much always go up) but the year on year trend is not rising. the media present it as a year on year trend there is more crime now than before but there isn't the stats show that.

Regardless of reality it is in the best interests of the media and the powers that be to keep the masses scared.
