Thanks for informing us. The number was transposed into 2011, but it has been corrected now. For your other point we only cover murders and kidnappings for ransom, there are no other stats that we track for the current year.
Title: Daily Murder Statistic
Comments: For Example in my line of Duty I need to know the Hot spots and which is not, my Life depends on that type of information. If not I could enter a community which has a high murder rate because of current gang warfare. So by these murder rates being expose daily, I will understand the landscape and practice due diligence.
Title: Murders figures 2008 to 2012 (Sep)
Comments: I have verified with the Trinidad and Tobago Police service web site and these are the murders figures 2008 to 2012 (September) 2008 = 529, 2009 = 473, 2010 = 472, 2011 = 343, and 2012 up to September = 306 so I want to know who is wrong is it this site or is it the T&T Police Service web site.
You bring up an interesting point. We follow the news for our figures as they are reported. For instance, let's use your example:
Comments: I am wondering if kidnappings reflect all kidnappings or just those for ransom because I think according to the TTPS their were some 131 kidnappings up to October 2012.
The double asterix defines the Kidnappings on the site:
** Kidnapping for ransom figures only - other types of kidnapping may make this number higher. Sometimes what was originally seen as a kidnapping turned out to be another sort of crime
Express Murder Figure vs. Police Murder Figure
Here is a good example showing the difference mentioned here: Source 2
A couple of days ago one murder Express Newspaper report said that there was 376 murders but later at night during TV6 News they reported two more murders which should have made the figure 378 but TV6 anchor Samantha John reported the police tally was 374. However, if you do a count based on daily news about Murder cases it does not add up.
TTCrime has been updated to show the new year's starting figures and last year's (2012). I have it at 381 with the death of the soldier, but I will no better later through the news if any murders took place yesterday.
