Is it a sign Surrey is beginning to turn the tide in its fight against violent crime?
For the first time in three years, the number of recorded incidents of violent crime dropped in 2016, down 16% after climbing between 2013-2015.
Attempted murder, robbery, sexual offences, and assault are all down from 2015, in some cases with double digit drops.
Robberies were down 37%, attempted murders fell 32%, and assaults dropped 13%.
But the figures aren’t all rosy.
The number of homicides climbed from eight in 2015 to 11 in 2016. However, that’s down from 17 in 2014 and 25 in 2013.
Property crimes also continue to be a major problem for the city.
After falling 10% overall in 2015 from the year prior, they rose slightly in 2016 with residential break-ins and theft from vehicles the driving force behind the jump.
Break-ins were up 15% while thefts from vehicles jumped 22%.
