Your Resource to Take Action

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 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, expand law presence and help reduce crime.
