Crimestat is a database established by the retail industry in order to collect statistics with the purpose of preventing robberies, break-ins and shoplifting.
Crimestat gives you the statistical overview of the local, regional and national development of robberies, break-ins and shoplifting.
Crimestat has been developed by the retail industry in cooperation with the Danish Chamber of Commerce. The Danish police uses information from Crimestat in their investigation of crimes.
The number of robberies increased with 30% in 2009 and as a consequence of this the retail industry created Crimestat. With Crimestat we have a unique cooperation in the retail industry, where information on robberies, break-ins and shoplifting is being shared in the largest effort in preventing and limiting crime ever being launched in Denmark. Crimestat is a database where you immediately get an overview of the situation and therefore a very useful tool in preventing robberies, break-ins and shoplifting. The shop report all information concerning the robbery, break-in or shoplifting to Crimestat immediately after the incidence. Other shops have access to the information in an anonymous form. This information gives you a good indication of the development and trends within the different crime areas.
Crimestat has been created by and for the retail industry and is an important tool for the preventive work. Crimestat has since its start the 31th of January 2010 become an important tool for the retail industry and a synonym for joint efforts against crime in the retail industry.
Crimestat is financed by sponsorships from business partners approved by the Steering Committee of Crimestat.
