In this episode we discuss:

‘How do we maintain a sense of security and keep our fears in check, when our perceptions of criminality across Sydney are not always aligned with the realities? Is crime in Sydney actually getting worse or is it just being reported more and highlighted by the media?’

This episode focuses on Crime, and discusses the relationship between media reporting and crime statistics in recent years. We tackle alcohol related violence, the use of Tasers by police and investigate a recent spate of drive by shootings in Western Sydney. This episode will bring to light the realities on Sydney’s current crime issues.
