The Town of Niverville saw a significant drop in crime in the last three months of 2017.

According to RCMP statistics, from the beginning of October to the end of December 2017 there were only 7 Crimes Against Person and 15 Crimes Against Property reported in Niverville. Over the same period in 2016, there were 16 Crimes Against Person and 43 Crimes Against Property reported.2018 02 niv sign

Niverville Mayor Myron Dyck says the drop in numbers is very encouraging.

"The RCMP has been very diligent in dealing with some of the break-and-enters and home invasions and things like that. This year the numbers were back to what they have been in other years because there have been some individuals that have been caught and thus removed from that."

RCMP Media Relations Sergeant Paul Manaigre says the drop in crime may be connected to a few key individuals.

"We believe it may be in relation to several arrests we’ve made several months ago regarding a home invasion in the area where three suspects were taken into custody and currently remain in custody so whether that correlation exist to show these the accused being in custody result in a reduction of crime is very likely."

Manaigre says the officers of the St. Pierre RCMP detachment work very hard to prevent crime in their jurisdiction. He notes it is always exciting when the system works and notes they are happy to report a reduction in crime.

Dyck says though town council is cautiously optimistic with the latest stats, they will continue to request greater police presence in their community.
