1 VANCOUVER POLICE DEPARTMENT PLANNING, RESEARCH & AUDIT SECTION ADMINISTRATIVE REPORT REPORT DATE: December 4, 212 BOARD MEETING: December 12, 212 BOARD REPORT # Regular TO: FROM: SUBJECT: Police Board Jim Chu, Chief Constable Introduction to the Crime Severity Index PURPOSE & SUMMARY: Previously the Police Board requested information about the crime severity index (CSI). This report explains what the CSI is, how it s calculated, and provides recent results for in comparison with other jurisdictions. Since the public release of the CSI in 29, has experienced significant decreases in all three types of CSI. In fact, since 2 s total decrease in all three types of CSI has been larger than decreases experienced in the Census Metropolitan Area, British Columbia (), and the national average. DISCUSSION: What is the CSI? The more commonly known and understood measure of crime is the total crime rate which is the number of reported criminal offences per 1, population (in a given jurisdiction for one calendar year). This is the total crime rate and it is further broken down into the violent crime and the property crime rate. Where the crime rate measures the volume of crime, the CSI measures the volume and seriousness of crime. The CSI helps explain whether or not reported crime is more or less serious than the previous year. Essentially, the difference between reported crime rates and the CSI measure is that the crime rate method counts the number of more serious crime incidents and the number of less serious crime incidents and applies an equal weighting; thus, one homicide is mathematically equivalent to one shoplifting incident (in the calculation of the total crime rate). The CSI was developed to apply differing weights to each type of crime and assess the severity of crime; thus, in the CSI calculation one homicide does not equal one shoplifting. The CSI was developed by Statistics Canada in consultation with the justice community and this included substantial input by Canadian police. The CSI was first introduced in 29.

2 CMA West Port Moody Delta White Rock Pitt Meadows Coquitlam Port Coquitlam Richmond North Maple Ridge Burnaby New Westminster Victoria Surrey Langley CSI Values One of the key variables used to measure the CSI is that of sentencing. More serious crimes receive more serious punishments from the courts and therefore, will result in a higher index value. To calculate the seriousness weight of each offence, the number of people serving sentences is multiplied by the average number of days served. The CSI then takes this weight value and multiplies it by the number of incidents per offence. All weighted offences are then added together and divided by the corresponding population total. The CSI has a base of 1 and the CSI s result for any jurisdiction can increase or decrease away from that base. Similar to reported crime rates, the CSI measures the Total CSI, Violent CSI, and Non-Violent CSI (i.e., property crimes and other Criminal Code offences). Recent Results for the Total CSI The 211 Total CSI in is 13.4 and it is higher than the national average of The following figure also compares s Total CSI with those of other police departments in the Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) 1, Victoria, and. As one can see Langley, Surrey, and Victoria had higher Total CSI s in 211 than Overall 211 CSI Comparison by Police Service Canada = The figure on the following page shows how these police departments Total CSI changed between 29 (since the creation of the CSI) and 211. All police departments experienced a decrease in Total CSI with the exception of White Rock (3.%). West experienced the largest decrease in Total CSI (36.%) and ranked tenth with a Total CSI decrease of 15.8%. 1 data cannot be extracted from other geographical areas as these figures are based on rankings and not incidents. 2
