Crime stats released by Prince Rupert RCMP

For the most part, crime statistics for the City of Prince Rupert show very little change from those reporters over the last few years.

While there were slight increases and decreases in particular types of crime, for the most part property type of crimes break ins and such were up slightly in the last year, while drug offence investigations were down in the last 365 days.

The traffic department saw a significant decrease in the amount of tickets issued in 2010, while impaired charges were also in decline.

Overall, the RCMP responded to 10,362 calls for assistance, which is almost the same number as 2009 when they logged 10,377 calls for help.

The Northern View had some details on the snapshot of crime from 2010.
