    This article examines the incidence and nature of three types of police-reported serious assaults in Canada: assault with a weapon or causing bodily harm, aggravated assault and assault against peace officers (including police). The characteristics of these offences are presented and the long and short-terms trends are discussed at the provincial and census metropolitan levels. Adult and youth court data are also utilized to analyze the decisions and sentencing outcomes for serious assault cases.

  • Articles and reports: 85-561-M2009017
    Geography: Census metropolitan area
    Description:

    This study examined the influence of school, neighbourhood and student characteristics on the likelihood of students committing violent delinquency. Based on data from the International Youth Survey (2006), findings indicated that there was significant variation in violent delinquency across Toronto schools. In part, this variation was explained by the school climate, or the perceived atmosphere in the school. In particular, a higher level of school capital (positive feeling toward the school) reduced students' chances of committing violent behaviour over and above any of their own risk factors. In contrast, the findings did not support the contention that the level of crime and/or socioeconomic disadvantage in the neighbourhoods surrounding schools had an influence on students' violent behaviour.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This article analyses data on the incidence and nature of police-reported drug offences in Canada. It examines the long and short-term trends in possession, trafficking, production, importing and exporting of cannabis, cocaine, heroin and "other" drugs, including methamphetamine (crystal meth) and ecstasy. Key issues include geographical comparisons, involvement of youth (12 to 17 years) accused of drug offences, and decisions and sentencing outcomes for those charged with drug offences. These data are intended to inform researchers, the media and the public on the nature and extent of drug offences in Canada.

    Description:

    Forcible confinement refers to the criminal offence of unjustly holding anyone against their will through the use of threats, duress, force or the exhibition of force. In contrast to most violent crimes, police-reported incidents of forcible confinement have been steadily rising in Canada since the late 1980s. This article examines the incidence and nature of forcible confinement in Canada and discusses the long and short-term trends in this offence. It also examines court outcomes for adult cases involving this offence.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The Internet is a virtual world filled with an abundance of information and endless sources of entertainment. While an extraordinary tool, the Internet comes with risks. For children these risks include the dangers of sexual exploitation, such as luring through the Internet.

    Presently, there is little data available on child luring. The information that does exist represents only those incidents that have been reported to the police. Therefore, it is difficult to quantify the full extent and nature of child luring offences in Canada. Nonetheless, using the first available police-reported data on child luring, this Juristat article presents a snapshot of the characteristics of this relatively new criminal offence and the people accused of committing it, as well as an examination of court cases and decisions for child luring offences.
