Public Crime Mapping Application

The Brandon Police Service cautions against using crime and/or other police data to make decisions/comparisons regarding the safety of an area or the amount of crime. When viewing Crime Statistics the following are things to consider:

  • The Data presented here represents only those crimes that are reported to the Brandon Police Service (BPS). The data here is not inclusive of all offenses, but a selected series that have specific interest to the community and responsiveness to common crime prevention techniques.
  • It is important for users of crime statistics data on the BPS web site to understand that the primary objective is to generate a reliable set of crime statistics for use in law enforcement administration, operation, and management. BPS does not provide this data as a method of determining if one area of the city is safer or more dangerous than any other area. Areas vary in size, population, and density, making such comparisons difficult.
  • The public may rely on this data for information on the fluctuation in the level and types of crime from year to year or month to month; and, criminologists, sociologists, legislators, city planners, and other students of criminal justice may use them in conjunction with other data for a variety of research and planning purposes.
  • Since crime is a sociological phenomenon influenced by a variety of factors, BPS discourages data users from performing comparative analysis between areas of the city based solely on the information provided here. This web site does not provide a comparative analysis.
  • This data is considered preliminary crime data and does not represent official statistics submitted to the Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics. This data is subject to change for a variety of reasons, including late reporting, reclassification of some offenses, and the discovery that some offenses were unfounded.
  • This data does not reflect or certify "safe" or "unsafe" areas. When looking at crime statistics it is important to consider geography (business vs. residential), and major institutions that exist within the boundaries (i.e. hospitals, schools, parks, etc.) of the reporting areas.
  • Data will sometimes reflect where the crime was reported versus where the crime occurred.
  • Areas with a high volume of foot traffic or that is more densely populated may have more reported crime. This does not necessarily mean more crime occurs there, but that more crime is reported there.
