Transit Police Release Comprehensive Report

It’s called a ‘Five Year Trend Report’ and goes back to 2008 looking at stats until 2012.

The report says survey results show 74-per cent of the time transit users feel safe riding the system.

That’s up from 64-per cent in 2009.

Crimes against the person were only marginally lower in 2012 compared to 2011 but were about nine-per cent lower than the five-year average.

As well Transit Police are defending their salaries saying they earn roughly two-per cent less than the average Vancouver Police Department officer.

The cost per transit officer including salary, benefits, overtime, equipment and training is 167-thousand-dollars.
