Trail RCMP statistics out for 2016

The Trail and Greater Area RCMP are out with last year's Crime Stats.

Sergeant Darren Oelke says while they've had an overall increase in calls for service, up about 400 from the previous year, they've actually had fewer Criminal Code or more serious calls so that's good news.

As for their focus for 2017, he says they see domestic assault as an area of concern, so that's one of their priorities, along with decreasing vehicle incidents and fatalities.

Oelke says they also plan to increase drug enforcement to try to keep the communities safe.
