For the week of August 23 through August 29, 2021, the Beaumont RCMP responded to 72 calls for service. Some of the calls for service included abandoned vehicle, breach of peace, dangerous driving, breach probation, roadside suspensions, items lost/found, mental health act, harassing communications, suspicious persons/vehicles, assault, traffic collisions, fail to stop or remain at accident scene, false alarms, fraud, break and enter, theft under $5,000 and mischief.

The Beaumont RCMP conducted 50 traffic stops, resulting in seven charges under the Traffic Safety Act.

RCMP and community peace officers are making regular patrols through school zones. Please be vigilant. 

Pedestrian Safety: Pedestrians accounted for 17.3% of all traffic fatalities in 2018, according to Transport Canada. Cellular phones and headphones should be put away when walking and be aware of your surroundings. Here are some tips to keep you safe:

  • Walk on the sidewalk or walk facing traffic if no sidewalk.
  • Cross at a crosswalk.
  • Always make eye contact with the driver.
  • Look both ways and up to see the traffic signal (walk or don’t walk).
  • If you are walking at night, wear a reflective vest and carry a flashlight.
  • Be careful around driveways and parking lots for vehicles backing out.
  • Supervise young children on walks. 

Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) tips to prevent break and enters to businesses is the focus for September. Report suspicious activity within the business to the police. Post rules on the door (such as no hoods, no backpacks, etc.). Call 780-929-7410 to obtain a business security tips pamphlet or to have a CPTED assessment completed. 

Beaumont residents are encouraged to view the RCMP Crime Mapping tool and can access the map through the City of Beaumont’s website at https://www.beaumont.ab.ca/532/Beaumont-RCMP-Crime-Map.

The Beaumont RCMP encourages the public to report all criminal and suspicious activity. In case of an emergency, call 911, for non-urgent reports call the Beaumont RCMP Detachment complaint line 780-929-7400. Your report helps us know where to look, who to look for and where to patrol in the future.
