Crime Statistics

The Greenlandic court system is comprised of four District Courts and The Court of Greenland, to represent first court level. The High Court of Greenland represents the second court level. As the Greenlandic court system is still a part of the Danish court system, the Supreme Court of Denmark is also third court level for Greenland.

The justice system in Greenland emphasizes resocialization. Convicts are generally allowed to maintain some degree of everyday life during imprisonment. Six correctional facilities exist in Greenland, distributed in towns of Ilulissat, Aasiaat, Sisimiut, Nuuk, Qaqortoq and Tasiilaq. Mentally deviant offenders may be sentenced to time indefinite imprisonment in Nuuk or in Denmark.

The crime statistics includes violations of the Greenlandic criminal law, plus a number of criminal laws, including traffic law violations. The crime statistics is divided into subjects, mirroring the formal process in which a violation is handled, from initial report to charge, trial and verdict.
