A “notable” uptick in police-reported crime in Alberta contributed to the first increase in the national rate in 12 years, Statistics Canada says. The national Crime Severity Index (CSI), which measures the volume and severity of police-reported crime, jumped five per cent from 2014 to 2015, the federal agency said Wednesday.

The rates for fraud rose with 15 per cent, and identity fraud with 9 per cent.
