Abstract

This report summarises trends in deaths in custody between 1990 and 2004, based on the National Deaths in Custody Program (NDICP) dataset. Overall, deaths in police custody have decreased during this time period compared with the period 1980-1989, although the number of deaths in police operations increased. This is attributed to an increase in the number of deaths of non-Indigenous persons in police operations. The report concludes that the number of deaths of Indigenous persons in police custody and custody-related operations has remained relatively low and stable over the 15 year period.
