Please see below for correspondence with TPS 11 Division. With an 83% increase in break & enters in 2020, it is more important than ever that businesses are following the crime prevention tips provided by TPS. CLICK HERE to learn more about how to decrease the risk of crime to your business.
Please see below comparison of occurrences happening on Commercial premises between 2019 and 2020 within the Junction BIA.
Looking forward to working together in 2021, providing BIA members with crime prevention tips and anything else Jan and I can assist members with that will ensure our businesses and residents are safe and well informed.
For reference, this is what the area of interest looks like relating to the information below:
Total occurrences increased by 3.6% from 2019 to 2020:
|Count of Occurrences||138||143||3.6%|
Looking at the Major Crime Indicators Category, Break & Enter had the greatest percent increase (83.3%) and assaults had the greatest percent decrease (-50.0%). We really need to continue working with our business owners and providing as much crime prevention tips, information, support as possible. Let’s make 2021 a great year. A lot can potentially be prevented with simple implementations such as: security cameras, monitored alarms, leaving empty cash drawers by the front door, removing valuable items from the front windows and much more.
See below for breakdown by MCI (Major Crime Indicator Category):
|Break and Enter||6||11||83.3%|
