Small rise in crime in Port Alice with 85 files opened in third quarter

Port Alice RCMP announced third quarter crime stats

While it’s been pretty quiet in Port Alice these last few months, crime has still continued to slowly rise.

The village had 30 files opened in the first quarter of the year (January-March), and then 59 files were opened in the second quarter (April-June).

The third quarter (July-September) saw another increase with 85 files opened, which Port Hardy RCMP detachment commander Corp. Chris Voller says is primarily due to the summer months having more people spending time outside, leading to more criminality.
