Safety Trends and Reporting of Crime - A Crime Victimisation Survey

Avanti Durani, Associate at IDFC Institute, spoke at a public seminar hosted by the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP) on IDFC Institute's crime and safety survey, "Safety Trends and Reporting of Crime - A Crime Victimisation Survey".


Abstract of the talk: 


"Public safety and security are critical for good quality of life. While there seems to be an agreement on the weak performance of both the police and the courts, this has not yet translated into a large-scale attempt at reform. The official records on crime and response by the police are hugely insufficient in gauging the scale of the problem due to widespread under-reporting, among other deficiencies. Safety Trends and Reporting of Crime (SATARC), IDFC Institute’s flagship survey, is an attempt to marshal evidence, in a systematic way, about the extent and nature of crime, satisfaction with police, and perceptions of safety. The SATARC survey aims to bridge this gap in public data on safety and crime."
