Crime falls in Wood Buffalo in 2010

Crime in the municipality is on a downswing.

Wood Buffalo RCMP announced their 2010 statistics today, showing a five percent drop in overall crime.

Most major crimes fell – from violent crime, to property crime.

There were large drops in breaking and entering, as well as car thefts – both dropped by about thirty percent.

There were more reports of drug crimes in 2010, but the RCMP says that’s because of more proactive policing, not more criminal activity.
