October is B&E (Seasonal Property) Time
The crime prevention calendar theme for the month of October reminds everyone to secure their seasonal property for the winter. Every year, the RCMP respond to numerous reports of break and enters at cottages and cabins throughout the winter months. Some tips to keep in mind are:
- remove all valuables from your cabin (including firearms)
- lock/secure all windows and doors, including all outbuildings
- make sure your property is well lit, with motion sensors, and use lights with timers
- consider installing a surveillance camera and alarm system
Join the RCMP Community Advisory Committee
The Beaumont RCMP Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is looking for two Beaumont residents to fill two volunteer positions: member at large and seniors’ representative. These are two-year term positions and provide an opportunity for input into the local RCMP policing goals.
Working as a collaborative team, you may be required to make and or implement recommendations on community policing initiatives based on identified trends and issues.
The CAC meets for two hours on the second Monday of the month during late afternoons, approximately six times per year. If you’re interested and would like to learn more, please email Constable Shyla Delowski.
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 at 780-929-7400. Your report helps us know where to look, who to look for and where to patrol in the future.
