Crime diving in 12 Division

Crime is diving in 12 Division, according to the most recent batch of police statistics, even though crime across the city is, on the whole, unchanged on a year-to-year basis.

In Toronto, robberies and thefts over $5000 are up about 10%, while assaults and sexual assaults are down very slightly (murders, which are so rare as to be of very dubious statistical use, are down 44%).

In Weston, Mount Dennis, and the rest of 12 Division, the numbers are down almost across the board. Auto thefts are up 7%, but B&Es and robberies are down by about 25%. Sexual assaults have been reduced by 10%. Thefts over $5000 and murders, being very rare, have no value as indicators of a trend, but they are down substantially, too.

The statistics were released at the end of March, and measure crime on a year-to-date basis. Obviously, things good change, but the first quarter of 2017 was certainly very good indeed.
