Well statistics show (from RCMP) that crime comes in many forms:
Guns shooting at persons
Violence against women, domestic violence
Robberies and B & E, Stolen property, trespass
and other lesser offences – impaired driving, speeding, careless use of a vehicle
Recently our local newspaper said there was an “epidemic” of crime locally – and I just don’t see it.
We have recorded in the last ten years a number of vicious gang like attacks on people known to police and many unsolved deaths.
We have had spats of drug raids, break ins and theft. BUT
Look at the NEWS – rather peaceful with the crooks living and working their trade in OK Falls, Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon.
Not much to report in Keremeos, Summerland, Osoyoos or Oliver – yet!! or lately!!
