Humbermede Crime Rates & Crime Statistics

Analyzing crime in any particular area requires a great deal of information and critical thinking. While crime rates generally vary from region to region, for statistical purposes streets are often used as dividers to break up a neighbourhood. This can provide a guide as to which regions have more crimes than others, but it should not be taken as an absolute fact. Criminals do not stop at artificial neighbourhood or region boundaries. For example, living across the street from a region with a high rate of property crime could likely be safer than living directly in that region, but it doesn’t mean that criminals won’t cross the street to commit crimes from time-to-time. It is also important to take a look at the crime rates of neighbouring areas to give yourself a general overview and a point of comparison. Taking all of these factors into account will allow you to accurately judge the crime rates for a Toronto neighbourhood. Keep in mind that crime can take place at any time, even in the safest neighbourhood, so having a reliable home security system is incredibly important. Here are the Humbermede crime rates against people and property. All rates are per 1,000 living and working in the area.
