The Town of LaSalle has been ranked as the safest community in Canada according to the data collected in 2018 for the Crime Severity Index from Statistics Canada.

The Crime Severity Index is compiled using the uniform crime reporting data from all of the 321 police services across the country.

According to Statistics Canada, the Crime Severity Index tracks the changes in the severity of crime, not just the volume. It is designed to measure change in the overall seriousness of crime from one year to the next, as well as relative differences in the seriousness of crime across the country. It measures both violent and non-violent crimes.

“Long ago, we implemented a community policing philosophy and embraced our many community partners who have assisted and guided us along the way. For the past 12 years, we have conducted approximately 450 customer satisfaction surveys annually, which yielded an overall 99% satisfaction rating ranging from good to excellent in all categories. We have taken the time and effort to listen to our citizen’s concerns and try to address them in a timely and efficient manner,” said Cst. Terry Seguin, Community and Corporate Affairs Officer in a news release.
