Canada is seeing less police-reported crime than it has in more than 40 years.

According to a report from Statistics Canada on Thursday, the Crime Severity Index (CSI) has dropped by about 28 per cent since 2002.

Statistics Canada attributes the decrease to an overall drop in the most common offences such as mischief, break and enter, motor vehicle theft and disturbing the peace.

The explanation behind the improvement is likely in many cases in Canada a result of city police working with provincial and local partners to address the causes of criminal activity. Police works with local forces like the department of education, social services, public safety, health and corrections on different strategies to reduce crime. The canadian Police have many social partners they work with.
