Assaults push Nottawasaga crime stats up in 2019

Posted February 4, 2020

Violent crimes investigated by Nottawasaga OPP in 2019, increased an average of about 28 per cent over 2018, led by a growth in the number of reported assaults, according to the year end service summary report to the Police Services Board.

No murders, but one attempted murder charge against three people that took place in July in Angus.

There were 198 assaults, up from 153, and 53 reported sexual assaults, an increase from 43 the year before.

Property crimes showed a slight increase of about two per cent, mostly due to jump in fraud calls of 189, up from 153 in 2018.

Drug crimes were down nearly 63 per cent, mostly owing to the legalization of cannabis.
