In the event of an emergency, or to report a crime in progress call 9-1-1
Rural crime is often linked to Organized Crime groups who target and exploit rural communities. Examples of rural crime include:
- Motor vehicle theft
- Damage to property
- Break and enters
These crimes should be reported to the police by calling your local police detachment or an online report.
Importance of Reporting a Crime
Oftentimes we may think a crime is insignificant, but reporting it contributes to the larger picture of policing in Alberta. When you don't report a crime, it impacts the overall responsiveness in your rural community. The information from these reports help the RCMP decide where to send their patrols.
The Alberta RCMP supports community engagement by providing the public with the tools, resources and information they need to uphold public safety – for themselves and for their communities.
The online map enables the Alberta RCMP to share current criminal incidents with members of the communities they serve across Alberta.
The RCMP hopes that the map will help encourage citizens to report suspicious activity to the police.
