Some of the calls for service include disobey court order, dangerous driving, impaired operation of a motor vehicle, municipal bylaws, mental health act, fraud, suspicious persons/vehicles, assault, traffic collisions, theft under $5,000 and mischief.

Albertans can count on the RCMP to continue to be fully committed to the safety and security of our province during the pandemic. This includes adopting our Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) strategies.
Here are some questions to consider this spring, whether you’re at home or at your seasonal property:
- Are your front, back, and garage doors locked?
- Are your outbuildings and shed locked?
- Are your lawn mower, quad and tools stored in a safe location?
- Are your alarm system and motion sensor lights active?
- Is it obvious when you’re not home?
- Is your yard adequately lit?
- Do you have a fence or natural barrier around your property?
This month, follow our #9PMRoutine daily CPTED tips. These tips may sound simple, but CPTED has proven to discourage crime and promote security all over the world. For more tips and crime prevention information, follow #HereToHelp and our social media accounts on Twitter (@RCMPAlberta), Facebook (@RCMPinAlberta) and YouTube (@RCMP-GRC Alberta).
