The Thompson Local News


The 2017 Crime Severity Index has been released, and Thompson is once near the top.

 

Thompson ranks first in violent crime, second in non-violent crime and second overall for communities with a population over 10,000.

 

Mayor Dennis Fenske spoke to Arctic Radio News, and said that Thompson’s numbers keep going up every year, with two main issues driving the increase. Fenske said that 15% of the increase is mischief, while 9% is assaults.

 

He said that when you look deeper into those statistics, addiction and mental health issues are often at the root of the problem. Fenske added that the City will continue to push for additional support for local groups like the CMHA and homeless shelter so they can better help those in need.

 

The Mayor repeated something he’s said every year; do you feel any less safe today than you did yesterday? Fenske said that for the most part people feel safe here. He said that when it comes to the index, Thompson is judged by one square block which is centred around the Canadian Tire Parking lot.

 

North Battleford, SK once again remained first overall, with all cities in the top ten located in western Canada.
