JUNE 12, 2019 Police Services Board Meeting

Pedersen Johnson Vagnini

At their June 12, 2019 meeting, Chief Pedersen made a presentation to the Board on '2018 Year End Crime Profile'.

The presentation covered Calls for Service Clearance Trends, Total Criminal Offences and Clearance Rates, Crime Trends, Crime Messaging and tips, and 'Our Shared Commitment'.

Calls for Service current trend across the Province show 15% are criminal in nature, while 85% are non-criminal in nature. Fluctuations in statistics are attributed to enforcement driven crime, crime prevention strategies, heightened awareness, preventing victimization before it occurs, increased online reporting, and social and economic factors. Chief Pedersen noted that overall, crime has increased slightly.

Road safety remains a priority to Police and public. There has been a 20% decrease in offences over the past 10 years. This is largely due to increased enforcement and community partnerships to reduce impaired driving that include MADD, Action Sudbury, PARTY Program, Last Drink Program, and Safe Ride Home.

Prevention includes the modernization of service delivery model and collaborative work with partners on Sexual Assault Review, Community Drug Strategy (CDS), Rapid Mobilization Table (RMT), Violent Threat Risk Assessment (VTRA), and Building & Understanding Resilience & Strength Together (BURST).

Community members can help by being aware, following Crime Prevention messaging through Social Media, and using the GSPS online reporting COPLOGIC.
