Shelburne Police 2016 Annual Report Released

Shelburne Police Service has released its 2016 annual report and it is available to be viewed in full here.

“Over the past several years calls for service have increased, however with Shelburne  being the fastest growing town in Ontario, an increase in calls for service can be expected”, states PC Neumann. “Although crime and traffic safety remain two of the services priorities, we continue to see an increase in calls for non-criminal societal issues such as mental health, addictions, landlord tenant disputes, family disputes, and others”.

For the past several years the Shelburne Police Service has been one of the highest ranked police services in Ontario for the clearance of criminal offences.  The 2016 criminal clearance rates would suggest that this trend continues.

“I am very proud of the work accomplished by our members during 2016.  We continue to be a community oriented police service which requires all officers to be on board and active in our town”, states Chief Moore.

Here are some highlights of the statistics outlined in the report:

  • Total Calls for Service: 5760 in 2016, 5274 in 2015, and 4648 in 2014
  • Motor Vehicle Collisions: 124 in 2016, 118 in 2015 and 107 in 2014

  • Domestic Assault Incidents: 44 in 2016, 28 in 2015, 42 in 2014
  • Property Crime: Up 9% from 2015 with a 50.7% clearance rate
