Role of the Members
Membership Benefits - Why Join RCW?
Statistics show that areas where there is an organized crime watch tend to have a significant reduction in criminal activity. By reporting suspicious activity in your area immediately to the RCMP at 403-335-3382, 403-556-3323 or 911, you become a citizen concerned about the quality of life in our community. We become the extra eyes and ears, and report suspicious activity to the police. Rural Crime Watch is a part of the Community Based Policing program, and has already been proven successful. A co-operative effort helps make our community safer for everyone. R.C.W. members commit themselves to helping to watch out for each other's property when they are away, and reporting suspicious activity to the police. This program helps prevent crime while still respecting privacy.
