Statistics Canada Article on Police Resources in Canada

At the end of March, the Statistics Canada publication Juristat published an article on Police resources in Canada, 2014.

The article examines trends in police resources for Canada, the provinces and territories, and census metropolitan areas (CMAs). The number of police officers per 100,000 population (rate of police strength) is presented for each of the national, provincial/territorial, and CMA levels.

Additionally, other police personnel statistics, including gender, hirings, departures, and eligibility to retire of police officers, and data on expenditures on policing (a component of justice system spending) are presented for the national and provincial/territorial levels. Finally, selected personnel data are presented at the national level, including rank, age group, and years of service of police officers, as well as the number of civilians.
