Introducing The Crime Watch App
The latest innovation from the Alberta Rural Crime Watch Association to help report crime and suspicious activity as they happen. Protecting your community has never been easier.
The Eyes and Ears of Rural Alberta
Alberta Rural Crime Watch Association will be leaders in crime prevention by building relationships through promotion, community involvement and identifying future needs with effective communication and promotion.
Getting Involved
Never in history, has community, meant more then it does now, and successful crime prevention takes the entire community to be engaged, for no one should know your communities better then us. The security of rural communities has traditionally been the tight relationships between neighbours and the recognition of strangers in the area. Rural Crime Watch formalizes this relationship, with the RCMP, and gets neighbours talking about things happening around them. Being aware is a huge contribution to personal and community security.
Vision Statement
We believe that we will only be successful when we earn the trust of each of us on the Board and our members through consistently fulfilling their needs and keeping our promises.
Mission Statement
Alberta Provincial Rural Crime Watch Association will strive to promote rural crime prevention through communication, programs and support.

The Alberta Provincial Rural Crime Watch Association is designed to reduce the incidence of crime in all rural areas and to create a more thorough understanding and awareness of the law and best safety practices. Protecting Alberta’s rural communities is a collective responsibility. The Alberta Provincial Rural Crime Watch Association provides opportunities and resources for citizens to take action in protecting what’s most important to them. Together with local RCMP detachments, we create a strong awareness and presence of the law and help reduce crime.
