Stats reveal Ipswich is fast becoming a regional murder hotspot.

Despite the total number of criminal offences on an apparent decline, after a spike in the past 3 years, Ipswich has recorded its highest number of murders in almost 10 years.

In fact, in the Ipswich Police District so far this year, 4 murders have been recorded...only topped by the 5 in 2010 since the turn of the millennium.

Meanwhile, according to the Queensland Police Service Online Crime Map for the past six months, the most significant clusters of crime are located in the Ipswich C.B.D, Booval, Bundamba, Redbank, Goodna and Redbank Plains.
