Why is it Important to Report Crime?

Step 1 - Report the crime to the RCMP

You can make a difference in our City by reporting crime to the RCMP - 780-830-5700No Drugs signs

Sharing information you have about a crime or someone involved in committing a crime can help the RCMP solve cases and prevent future crimes from taking place.

There are many reasons for reporting a crime:

  • It can help to protect you, your family and community from future crimes
  • It can give you a chance to deal with the harm done to you or others
  • There is a better chance of finding the person responsible
  • It may stop someone from committing another crime
  • It can provide the information that could solve the crime 

Step 2 - Get Involved & Get Engaged

Crime Prevention offers countless programs and initiatives for residents to get involved with:
