What is the RCMP responsible for? RCMP

The Grande Prairie RCMP Detachment is responsible for keeping public order and investigating criminal offences. This entails the enforcement of the Criminal Code of Canada, Federal statutes, such as the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, as well as Provincial statutes such as the Traffic Act. 

When should I call the RCMP?

Dial 780-830-5700 for all non-emergency calls. You should only call 9-1-1 when an immediate police response is required. 

Non-emergency calls include:
  • Reporting a crime that has already been committed and no suspects are present (vehicle or home break-in, vandalism, fraud, etc.)
  • Reporting suspicious activity 
  • Reporting a missing person
  • Reporting suspected drug activity 

Why should I Report Crime? 

By sharing information you have about a crime that has been or may be committed, you can help the police solve crimes and prevent future crimes from taking place. Read more on why reporting crime is everyone's responsibility here.
