Note to editors/readers
Starting November, Halifax Regional Police and Halifax Regional Municipality will be jointly releasing data related to motor vehicle and motor vehicle/pedestrian collisions through a single source as part of HRM’s open source data portal at this link: https://www.halifax.ca/home/open-data
As a result, HRP will no longer be issuing its monthly motor vehicle/pedestrian collision report. Starting next month, HRP will include a link on its website to the location where the data will be released by the municipality through its open data portal. We ask anyone interested in this information to familiarize themselves with this portal and refer to it for this information starting next month.
