The Town of LaSalle has been ranked as the third safest community in the Crime Severity Index rankings for 2020.

The Crime Severity Index is compiled using the uniform crime reporting data from all of the 325 police services across the country.

According to Canadian Centre for Justice and Community Safety Statistics, the Crime Severity Index tracks the changes in the severity of crime, not just the volume. It is designed to measure the 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.

“When I am talking to the residents of our community, they often tell me how safe they feel. We thank the members of the LaSalle Police Service for their commitment and dedication to ensuring our safety. The Crime Severity Index confirms that LaSalle Police Service is providing effective programs and services within our community,” said Mayor Marc Bondy.
