The aim of this article is to provide a brief overview of street level crime in Toronto using the latest Police statistics. Police data is usually published two months in arrears, so December 2020 are the latest figures. The data published by the Police are incidents that were reported to them in that month, not the crimes that were prosecuted and/or had further action taken. In by far the majority of incidents, no further action is taken.
There were a total of 10 street level crime incidents in Toronto in December 2020. The largest category was Anti Social Behaviour, followed by Burglary. Below are these incidents broken down by category.

Map of street level crime incidents in December 2020
Police data is divided in Policing Neighbourhoods. We have taken the 'best fit' neighbourhood that includes Toronto. This map shows if incidents are evenly distributed over the district or if there are hot spots in certain streets or areas.
Where Police data is not specific to an address for privacy reasons, most roads are represented by 1 to 2 markers or clusters. However, this should be enough to ascertain if the road you live in or are thinking of moving to, is a crime hot spot. The only exception could be where there is a large cluster of a single crime category on a street, as this could but not necessarily be related to multiple incidents at one address.
