Volunteers with Rural Crime Watch are the eyes & ears for the enforcement services. It's neighbours looking after each other!

The areas of Olds, Didsbury & Sundre have joined under one administrative body to be more effective and to reduce the administrative tasks. We have a phone, fax, e-mail system which we use to broadcast information warning for concerns such as:

  • a particular vehicle prowling the rural areas
  • individuals passing fraudulent cheques, POs or counterfeit currency
  • information on stolen property
  • information on missing individuals
  • watch-out notices for specific stolen property
  • and more

    This information is broadcast to all members and the system is only used for police or crime prevention matters. WE ARE MAKING AN IMPACT WITH CRIME PREVENTION!

    Crime in the Community
    Criminal activity such as break and entry, theft, vandalism, grow operations, trespassing and poaching are steadily increasing in rural Alberta. Many such incidents can be prevented or suspects apprehended through co-operative efforts of the community and law enforcement agencies.

    Who Pays for Crime?
    EVERYONE. Crime is costing millions of dollars every year. These costs are reflected by loss of property and higher insurance premiums, replacement or repair of equipment, lost production time for farmers and ranchers, and depletion of precious fish and wildlife resources and habitat.
