Belleville’s Police Chief is raving about the 2011 crime stats annual report.
At yesterdays’ Police Board meeting, Chief Cory McMullan told officials they’d seen a 13.7-percent decrease in reported crimes from 2010 to 2011.
In total, 15-hundred fewer crimes occurred.
McMullan added the city saw a significant decrease in the severity of crimes.
For 2010, MacLean’s Magazine dubbed Belleville, the most dangerous city in Ontario.
McMullan says that title certainly would not apply last year.
