National Bureau of Statistics Crime and Justice

Crime Justice & Security

Welcome to the Crime Justice and Security (CJS) section of the National Bureau of Statistics website. This initiative was launched through Seychelles' participation in the CJS statistics module of the IMF General Data Dissemination System (GDDS) Phase II project.

Recognizing the global challenges of sparse, scattered, and poorly recorded CJS data, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) seized the opportunity to address this issue. As the apex institution of the National Statistical System (NSS), the Bureau formed a national committee consisting of key stakeholders in the CJS field. Acting as the committee's coordinator, the Bureau has undertaken the responsibility of mainstreaming CJS statistics into its regular statistical compilation processes.

The Crime Justice and Security Unit of the Bureau gathers and analyzes administrative data from various stakeholders involved in maintaining law and order in Seychelles. These stakeholders include the Police Department, Employment Department, Judiciary, Employment Tribunal, Family Tribunal, Probation Services, the Prison Department, and the Seychelles Revenue Commission (SRC). The CJS unit works closely with these departments and agencies that compile and submit monthly reports to the NBS.

We remain committed to continuous improvement and the regular dissemination of updated CJS statistics. As we progress, we will work diligently to expand our data collection efforts and enhance the quality and accessibility of the information provided. We appreciate the ongoing support and collaboration of our stakeholders and look forward to further advancing the field of Crime Justice and Security through robust statistical analysis.

Please explore the various sections of our website to access the latest CJS statistics, publications, and other relevant information. For any inquiries or feedback, do not hesitate to contact our team.
