Articles and reports: 85-002-X202000100013


This article examines the nature of crime reported in 2018 by police services that were identified in this study as serving populations where over half the residents were Indigenous. The study used data from the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey to identify those offences which account for differences between rates of crime reported by police serving majority Indigenous populations when compared with police serving predominantly non-Indigenous populations. In addition, the article examines the characteristics of criminal incidents in these communities and presents information on the socioeconomic conditions of the populations served by these police services.
