When you’re looking for the best neighbourhood to live in in Ottawa, many people like to have some idea of the safety or crime rate of the neighbourhood.
This can be an important deciding factor for some people.
Ottawa Police Service provides such a site where you can review different areas of the city and enter an address and move around the map to easily the number and types of incidents reported within a certain time frame.
Bear in mind thought that areas may have more crimes reported but also a much higher population so not necessarily a worse area statistically.
Play around with the map below to see what information is available. Or visit their website directly at https://www.ottawapolice.ca/en/ottawacrimemappingtool.asp
