Quiet year for crime in Port Alice

In total, there were 238 files opened for the entire year.

It was pretty quiet in Port Alice this year with regards to criminal activity.

The village had 30 RCMP files opened in the first quarter of the year (January-March). The second quarter (April-June) then saw an increase with 59 files opened.

The third quarter (July-September) saw another increase with 85 files opened, only for there to be a decrease in the fourth quarter (October-December) with 64 files opened.

In total, there were 238 files opened for the entire year. Port Hardy RCMP’s acting detachment commander Corp. Martin Giguére says the decrease in the last quarter was primarily due to the RCMP cracking down on a few social offenders.
