East Orleans has most sex assault complaints in Ottawa, but police don't know why

Sexual assaults are reported more often in Orleans, but police don’t know why and officers on the front lines don’t appear to have the resources to find out.

Vanier might get a bad rap for safety issues, but the Ottawa area consistently seeing the highest number of sexual offences reported to police is in east Orleans, Metro has learned.

Police zone 510, in the east of Orleans, has averaged 20 incident calls per year between 2002 and 2013.
