The quarterly police stats are out for the Town of Gibsons and the commander of the Sunshine Coast RCMP is thrilled with results.
Staff Sgt. Vishal Mathura explains some of the stats they’ve recorded from April until the end of June.
Mathura says across the Lower Mainland District, they’ve only had a one percent decrease in crime rate and call volume.
Mathura adds their number one call for service is traffic and in order for them to keep the call volumes and crimes rates down, they have to continue with the practice of proactive policing.
