Your Resource to Take Action Against Crime
Rural crime rates remain high in Alberta, leaving communities on edge and overwhelmed. The Alberta Provincial Rural Crime Watch Association wants to help reduce crime in rural areas and to create a more thorough understanding and awareness of crime prevention and best safety practices.
