Community Counts for Crime Prevention and Reduction Update: New features have been added to this great tool that will allow users to view 2010 crime statistics, providing a much deeper analysis of a community's crime picture than before. For more information please review the update (PDF).
The Community Counts for Crime Prevention and Reduction tool will benefit those involved in, but not limited to, program development and delivery, policy development, research, municipal planning, community development projects, and strategic planning. This tool can be used to plan programs as well as provide benchmark statistics against which progress can be measured. Community Counts for Crime Prevention and Reduction offers the most up-to-date crime statistics for Nova Scotia and will aid communities in painting a portrait of their local area.
