Property crimes down in Abbotsford

Abbotsford Police have recorded their lowest number of property crimes in the community since the beginning of 2009, according to Deputy Chief Rick Lucy.

He presented the latest CompStat (computer statistics) figures at the monthly police board meeting for the period from Aug. 13 to Sept. 9, when there were 356 such crimes.

Lucy said this is the lowest number of property crimes for any CompStat period since January 2009. The total number of property crimes for the year, up until Sept. 9, is 4,246, compared to 4,572 for the same period in 2010. This is a seven per cent reduction – close to the Abbotsford Police Department’s goal of a 10 per cent drop for the year.
