Scarborough, a former municipality within the eastern part of the city of Toronto, became a city in itself in 1983. Today it’s a popular destination for new immigrants to Canada making it one of the most diverse and multicultural areas of the Greater Toronto Area. In 2005, a series of gang-related shootings in some neighborhoods of the city led to the portrayal of Scarborough as a crime-infested division of the Greater Toronto Area. And while this is an erroneous impression of Scarborough because the city is not exactly a mess of street gangs, firebombing and stabbings, statistics from Toronto Star’s homicide map show that in 2011 and 2012 alike, the Scarborough crime rate was higher than in the rest of Toronto. Therefore, when it comes to the negative reputation that Scarborough holds, it is not 100% accurate but it is not absolutely undeserved either.
How to make your home and business less of a target for crimes
