Property Crime Rates Drop In Barrington

Property crime rates in Barrington are at their lowest levels in six years. An RCMP crime analyst provided details to council members with the Municipality of Barrington. Mischief is on the decline in the municipality, but break and enters are on the rise based on analysis of this year's figures to date. Barrington RCMP detachment commander, Sgt. M.J. Deluco, says the reduction in property crime could lead to a trickle-down effect in neighbouring communities.

Deluco says she's pleased with the results. She says by examining crime data, it can identify people responsible for offences and locate key pockets of crime.
