The VPD just released the March crime statistics for the city.
In March, District 4 (the Westside) did not have the most burglaries in the city! For the first time in more than two years, District 3 (the Eastside) got the chance to ‘lead’ the city in break-ins with 262 reported burglaries to the Westside’s 231. District 2 (Northeast) had 137 while District 1 (Downtown) had 91. Here is a link to an image of the four districts in Vancouver.
As in the past, I have extended the same two graphs (double click on either of them to see a bigger version) to include the March 2006 numbers. The first compares the Westside vs. all of Vancouver. The second graph (the line graph) compares four neighbourhoods: Kerrisdale, Shaughnessy, Dunbar/Southlands and West Point Grey since December 2005. For the most part, there was little change for each neighbourhood between February and March. The biggest change was in Dunbar where 4 fewer burglaries were reported to the Police in March than in February…
In terms of some of the other categories of crime incidents, here is how the Westside compared to the other areas of the city in March.
