___ Police is committed to keeping ____ one of the safest places to live in Canada. The goal of this interactive tool is to improve community awareness of police activity and engage citizens in crime prevention strategies so that we can work in partnership to build safer communities.

Information viewed within this map should not be used to make decisions or comparisons regarding the safety or crime levels for a specific area. The system is designed to provide citizens with an overview of police activity only; for more detailed statistics regarding confirmed crimes, please refer to our annual Statistical Reports.

The data represented on the map includes, but is not limited to, proactive policing efforts, and police reports of break and enter, theft, theft of vehicle, theft from vehicle, homicide, robbery, assault, sex offences, arson, missing persons, weapons offences, traffic enforcement and liquor and drug offences. However, due to the need to protect certain types of police information, some reports will be excluded.

When using this tool, the following factors should be considered:

  • Map flags represent incidents where police reports are filed. These reports are preliminary in nature and subject to change for a variety of reasons.
  • In order to protect privacy, no personal or identifying information is included in the map. Addresses are rounded to the hundred block level and should be considered approximate; any attempts to derive a specific address are strictly prohibited. To ensure privacy of the victims involved, the locations of domestic violence offences and offences against children will not be mapped. Highly-populated areas or areas with a high-volume of foot traffic (i.e. shopping areas, entertainment facilities, schools, parks, main roads, etc.) may have more reported incidents. This does not necessarily mean that there is a disproportionate amount of crime in these areas.
  • The map will sometimes indicate where an incident was reported versus where the incident occurred (for example, a large number of police reports are filed at police stations).
  • Proactive Policing Flags represent traffic enforcement, foot patrol, crime prevention and community policing activities. They do not represent crimes.
