Statistics Canada today released Police-reported crime statistics, 2011 that shows the overall volume of crime in Canada declined by 6% in 2010. The crime rate is now lower than it was in 1972.

However, some crimes increased in volume last year:
"The drop in crime was seen throughout the country and for most offences, including attempted murders, major assaults, sexual assaults, robberies, break-ins and motor vehicle thefts."
"Offences that showed an increase in 2011 were homicide, sexual offences against children, child pornography, criminal harassment, impaired driving and most drug offences."
