Crime stats from first quarter of the year shows crime down in Langley City

Every quarter, the Langley RCMP provides an update on crime statistics and trend in Langley City. I created the following interactive charts based on information that was recently provided to City council. The period covered is from the beginning of January to the end of March.

As a note, common assault includes things such as bar fights and domestic situations.

The COVID-19 state of emergency started in the last few weeks of this reporting period. This could be the reason why there was a slight uptick in business break & enters, and a slight decrease in residential break & enters in the month of March. The next reporting period will show the full impact of the COVID-19 state of emergency.

The largest segment of crime in Langley City is still theft from auto. You can help reduce theft from auto by keeping your vehicle locked at all times, and removing all items from your vehicle.
