Growing Issue of Crime in Thunder Bay Seen with Crime Map


November 5 2011 Crime THUNDER BAY – Crimebeat – The growing issue of crime in Thunder Bay can be seen with Crime Map. Last night, citizens in need of police faced, for non-serious cases, a wait of over two hours before a call could be responded to by police. Yet there remain some who assert that crime is not really a problem in our community. It can, easily be argued that Thunder Bay really doesn’t deserve the title of “Murder Capital of Canada”. With six murders in our city last year, and most of those murders being people who knew each other, it is not like people are being killed in our streets.

However the Thunder Bay Police are faced with a growing problem that often doesn’t fully make it into the news. On November 4th, there was an assault at Limbrick Place, a Sexual Assault in the 1200 block of Balmoral Street, another Sexual Assault at the 400 Block of Tuscany Drive, yet another Sexual Assault on the 600 Block of Waterloo Street.

There was a drug offense reported on the 1600 block of Home Avenue, and two assaults responded to at Lakehead University. There were three additional Assaults in the downtown area of the Northward.

On average, the Thunder Bay Police Service issue one or two of the incidents that happen overnight in Thunder Bay. Through Crime Map residents can get a far more in-depth look at the crime situation in our community.
