The summarized offence statistical data in the following report is derived from the RCMP PRIME - BC Provincial Occurrence Code Table (UCR) and differs from data provided up to June 6, 2006, in the Operational Statistics Reporting System (OSR) within the Police Information Retrieval System (PIRS). As a result, scoring rules and occurrence codes have been modified and will not accurately reflect changes when comparing UCR and OSR data.
The summarized data included in this report represent
actual offences only (i.e.: those incidents which upon preliminary investigation have been deemed to have occurred or been attempted) Incidents of crime that were reported but could not be substantiated when followed up by the police are considered to be
unfounded and are subtracted from the number of reported offences to produce the number of actual offences. This data also does not indicate or infer the number of charges laid, prosecutions conducted, informations sworn, or convictions obtained.
Data contained in this report is also based on accumulated-to-date information. The data presented here may vary from previously produced reports and numbers may continue to change due to the dynamic nature of offences being reported and cleared.
The crime data contained within this report (i.e.: number of offences) utilizes the UCR Survey to collect aggregate data on the incidence of crime. The UCR Survey uses the most serious incident rule when compiling police-reported crime data. The MSO rule stipulates that where a single criminal incident contains a number of violations of the law, then only the most serious one is recorded for UCR purposes. As a result, the total number of UCR offences does not represent the total of all crime reported by police (i.e.: the UCR Survey tends to underestimate the true incidence of relatively less serious crimes)
For the purposes of this report, offences have been divided into 5 major categories that include Crimes Against Persons Offences Against Property and Other Criminal Code offences. Offences under the Controlled Drugs & Substances Act have been included but not other federal statutes such as the Customs Act or the Canada Shipping Act.
