POLICE REPORTED CRIME RATES
The crime rate in Saskatchewan has fallen for ten consecutive years with a particularly large 7.3% drop in 2013. The severity of the offences is falling just as quickly. The drop is occurring among all kinds of crime but is particularly noticeable for property and violent crimes. The drop is more pronounced in Regina and Saskatoon than outside the cities.
Notwithstanding the rapid improvement, the crime rate in Saskatchewan is still the highest among the provinces and Regina and Saskatoon have the highest crime rates among major urban centres in Canada.
