Poaching is a growing problem in Alberta, but it is one that you can help prevent. Report A Poacher relies on Alberta's hunters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts to report suspected illegal activities.

Crime of any nature is unwelcome. To distinguish rural crime from urban crime seems unnecessary, but rural crime is different.

Rural crime brings to mind agriculture and family farms,sparsely populated areas and a sense of community where the people know one another and act accordingly. Unfortunately, fewer people in rural areas leaves open various opportunities for criminal elements. While rural areas have less crime than their urban counterparts, they also have more crime than they did in the past, and their crime problems are serious.

It is up to the neighbours and family members to be ever-vigilant about what happens a few miles down the road.

This is the mission of Olds Rural Crime Watch.

Rural vandals do more than steal farm equipment.

Olds/Didsbury/Sundre Rural Crime Watch (RCW) programs are significant in developing and maintaining a safe community. These programs require a dedicated group of community-minded people in concert with local police representatives. If you would like to get involved, please call 403.556.8846.
