NNSL on the CRIME RATES as an #nwtelec17 #NWT election issue


Monday, September 5th, 2011

Crime rates and severity have dropped everywhere in Canada except the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Newfoundland and Labrador, according to Statistics Canada. Police-reported robbery rates have also risen in the NWT. Historically, robbery rates in the North have been among the lowest in the country. Youth crime also declined across Canada, with the exception of Nunavut and the NWT, which both showed small increases.Are there not enough police in the communities? Does unemployment, poverty, addiction create a criminal behaviour? What are the solutions? More police? Longer sentences? See the background stories below and leave a comment at the bottom link.
