Was 2021 Safer Than Previous Years In Prince Albert?
Prince Albert is a beautiful place to live, but the city has a dangerously high crime rate compared to other Canadian cities. However, with more and more businesses and homes incorporating security systems, was 2021 safer than previous years?
The Prince Albert Police department publishes criminal stats on their website. According to these statistics, violent crime dropped by 3% in total, including an almost 20% reduction in homicides. The drop in violent crime is welcomed news to Prince Alberta Citizens. In 2019 and 2020, Prince Albert had one of the highest homicide rates in Canada.
Break and Enter crimes for residential and commercial properties have been reduced by 20%. We believe this is a combination of lockdowns and increased usage of security systems.
Unfortunately, not all property crimes have dipped. Arson and Mischief are up 27% and 43% compared to 2020. Overall, total property crime in Prince Alberta is up almost 23% compared to 2020. These property crimes cost the city millions of dollars each year, and the criminals are often hard to track.
