Update of 2013 police activities - Ten percent crime reduction

Wednesday, 18 June, 2014

The Châteauguay police department unveiled this morning update of 2013 police activities at the Vanier Cultural Centre. Among the elements to emphasize, the general reduction in criminal activities by 10% should be mentioned. It is due in part to the significant drop in crimes against the property to the tune of 19%.

Châteauguay police director Stéphane Fleury went over the report of 2013 police activities in front of elected officials of the towns serviced by the Châteauguay police department.

In the first place, we notice a reduction of 10% of open files, a number which dropped from 3,226 cases in 2012 to 2,910. The solution rate of crimes reported in 2013 remains stable, situated at 55% (1,602 cases solved), a slight reduction of 1% compared to 2012. 

SCAU

The deployment of the centralized service of emergency calls (SCAU) enabled the Châteauguay police department to be the first police force in the Montérégie to receive the certification of conformity with the standards established by the Public Security Ministry and is the eighth in all of Quebec out of 32 police departments. In 2013, the SCAU received a total of 36,389 calls.

Road safety

The number of infractions to the Road Safety Code was on the wane with 14,339 tickets for violations recorded in 2013 contrasted to 15,704 in 2012. The number of accidents and hit-and-run cases was lowered by 10.5%, falling from 1,029 to 920. This result is extremely satisfying because it consists of the third reduction in the number of accidents in three years.

“The police department continually deploys its energies in order to improve the quality of life of the citizens and to respond to the unceasingly changing needs,” Fleury said.  “These results are the reflection of the commitment and the professionalism of all of our police and civil personnel and I thank them for their daily involvement and devotion,” he added.

The Chateauguay police service numbers 117 police officers and cover the municipalities of Beauharnois, Chateauguay, Lery, Mercier and St. Isidore. These territories cover an area of 217 square kilometers and include 77,196 citizens.

The police department also reminds residents not to hesitate to report deeds and situations which break the law. The Info-confidential phone line is 450.698.3229.
