Crime rate jumps five per cent in 2016

The crime rate in Peterborough has shot up by five per cent. A number that’s startling but perhaps not surprising as violent crimes have also risen in the last year.

Up to 702 in 2016 up from 672 in 2015.

As Jesse Thomas reports, it’s keeping Peterborough police officers busy- but they’re solving the vast majority of these crimes.
