FALL RIVER: Several varieties of crime over the past week have kept police officers in Fall River, Beaver Bank, and Musquodoboit Valley busy.

That’s according to the Crimemapping website tool from Halifax District RCMP-Halifax Regional Police, which showed on July 6 that officers had responded throughout the large area of District 1.

In Dutch Settlement, North Central RCMP responded to a report of a vehicle theft on Logan Road on July 3.

On July 5, RCMP received a report of an alleged assault near Camp Nedooae Road in Elderbank.

Police are investigating a theft from vehicle in the area of William Nelson Drive in Kinsac that occurred on June 29.

RCMP are investigating an alleged assault that occurred on the Windsor Junction Road in Windsor Junction on July 4.

Police responded to a break-and-enter into a residence on Beechcrest Drive in Waverley on July 3.

HRM Crime Mapping is an online crime mapping tool to provide timely information to you, our citizens, about various crimes happening in our community. The purpose of this project is to help prevent crime by arming residents with information.

It is an interactive site which is updated daily at midnight with incidents of five specific crime types – robberies, assaults, break and enters, thefts of vehicles and thefts from vehicles. These crime types were selected given that people can take steps to protect themselves from becoming a victim if armed with information about what’s happening in our community.

HRM Crime Mapping allows you to search crime types by street name or community, and to view the selected crime types one at a time, several at a time or altogether by three different time frames – yesterday, the past four days and the past week. To ensure privacy, the crimes are plotted on the mid-point of the closest block and are not associated with specific civic addresses so as not to identify a person or an address.

The information on HRM Crime Mapping is based on police reports that are potentially subject to change as an investigation progresses.
