Crime Prevention


December 30, 2018

The RCMP in Rimbey are responsible for law enforcement in the region. They realize that property crime is a concern in rural Alberta.

The RCMP offer the following tips for crime prevention and reporting:

  • Install an audible, loud, on-site alarm
  • Security cameras also may help
  • When your home or cottage is vacant, remove valuables and other sought-after items such as liquor
  • Make sure your property looks lived-in and have someone do regular check-ins if you are away
  • Neighbours walking around the community and watching out for each other is one of the best methods of prevention
  • Call RCMP right away when you see suspicious behaviour – not hours later
  • Do not give chase, but stay out of view when you call so the suspect is not alerted
  • Be cautious with crime perpetrators, they may be armed
  • Join the local Gull Lake North COPS (Citizens on Patrol) – it is a deterrent to crime
