Community Policing

Citizens on Patrol

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.

Didsbury Community Policing

Time and time again RCMP traffic services come across contraband being moved, smuggled, imported and exported on the highways. Rural grow-ops are becoming more common place and RCMP are reminding urban area residents to report any suspicious or criminal activity taking place in their neighbourhoods.The Didsbury Community Policing Society works in partnership with the RCMP to pro-actively address community concerns and to implement strategies to improve crime prevention, enforcement and investigation through Community Policing initiatives. Volunteer representatives are involved from a wide cross-section of community organizations and the public. Any policing concerns or issues from the public should be forwarded in writing to the committee to be addressed.

The Didsbury crime watch area is that part of Mountain View County to the south of the Bergen/Burns Road.

The Committee pledges to make our communities safer by:

  • Providing a forum for discussion about policing problems and solutions in the Didsbury RCMP detachment area.
  • Acting in an advisory capacity to the Didsbury RCMP regarding specific issues

The Didsbury and District Community Policing Advisory Committee encourages you to become involved:

  • Attend a meeting to meet the people who represent you.
  • Talk to your friends and neighbours about your common issues and voice your concerns at a meeting or send a letter to us c/o 5119 - 49 Ave., Olds, Alberta T4H 1G2

For 2016, Didsbury Town Council asked the local RCMP to concentrate on the following issues:

  1. Reduction of property crimes
  2. Emphasis on enforcement on the possession and distribution of illicit drugs.
  3. High police visibility in the community and within schools
