1. These represent data at the police service level and will differ from the data for the census metropolitan area of the same name.
2. The population for this police service reflects it's jurisdiction as of Dec. 31 2009, which includes only the city of Woodstock. However, for part of the year, the crime data included additional jurisdictions accounting for another 25,000 population. Therefore, the Crime Severity Index values presented here are somewhat over-inflated.
