Summary

As you can see from the above information, from 2013  until 2015 there has been a steady decrease in police being dispatched to property related crime calls. However, from 2016 forward there has been a significant increase. The police are not able to keep up with the call volume which means the "lesser" crimes take a back seat. This is also the case for the Crowns office and the court system, there is just not enough time r money to go around. Our justice system is set up to fail the business community and puts a larger focus on businesses protecting themselves. Having the proper security action plan in place will ensure your loss and/or damage is minimal.
