Kenora Crime Rate Continues to Tumble

There has been a noticible decrease in the crime rate over the past five years in the City of Kenora.

Figures released by the OPP show the number of calls for service has dropped by about 43 hundred
since 2009.

Inspector Dave Lucas says they have adopted a three pronged approach to reducing crime.

Lucas says drug and alcohol addiction also contributes to the city's crime rate, and it's something they've
focused on in recent years.
