The latest data into the city's crime trends shows an increase in domestic violence assaults, but a huge downturn in break-ins at homes.
The research from the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research shows from June 2018 to June 2019, there were 457 incidents of domestic violence assault reported.
An increase of 59 reports from the previous 12 months.
Superintendent Noble said domestic violence is one of the most underrepresented crimes.
"An increase of reports in itself is not necessarily a bad thing, nor is it something to celebrate," he said.
"Police in the Riverina and Wagga are increasing our legal action rates against domestic violence offenders, and we are implementing measures against repeat offenders and clamping down in stringent fashion on their day-to-day activities.
"We are not celebrating an increase in reports, but more reports are better than it not being reported at all."
Wagga Women's Health Centre manager Gail Meyer echoed Superintendent Noble's sentiments, adding that women could feel more supported in coming forward.
"There has been a lot of discussion in our community about the causes, the range of services and the women will be believed if they come forward," she said.
In a huge win for the men and women in blue, break and enters into homes went from 714 to 634 in the 12 months.
Superintendent Noble said officers have been working proactively to tackle the crime, including establishing a property crime force.
"We leave no stone unturned, and I think that is what we are seeing in those good results," he said.
Another crime trend on the rise was fraud, including scams, which saw an increase of 30.2 per cent from June 2017 to June 2019.
"A very common form of fraud is stolen credit cards, but we are seeing more cybercrime, particularly in the field of identity theft," Superintendent Noble said.
"It is a way that people can commit serious offences. I would encourage people to safeguard these details."
Superintendent Noble said as a general rule, banks, insurance companies or the Australian Taxation Office will not call and ask for personal details.
He added, in that instance, one should hang up, report the incident and contact the agency via an established number to confirm the issue.
Superintendent Noble said the police district is working on investigations into cases of fraud in Wagga while continuing to educate the community.
