What's New?
We will try to keep you up-to-date with news from around the province, particularly in the Cypress County and County of Forty Mile regions.

  • (This mobile app was launched in 2022, but we wanted to give a shout out to it for those that haven't heard about it.)

    Below is the press release from AB RCMP C/Supt Peter Tewfik, OIC, Community Safety and Wellbeing Branch.

    The easy-to-use digital platform provides the public with organizational news, detachment locations and contact information, crime mapping and statistics, information on organizational initiatives such as Project Lock Up, and more. Users also have access to links for partner law enforcement agencies, mental health supports, Crime Stoppers, as well as our organization's social media accounts.

    Our intent with this app is to help remove any barriers in accessing important Alberta RCMP resources. Though the app will not replace existing online tools, it will supplement our current web content and consolidate information into one mobile source.

    This user-friendly platform has been developed as a means for Albertans to stay engaged and connected to us as their local law enforcement. We look forward to the ways in which the app will better inform and support the communities we serve.

    The Alberta RCMP app is currently available for download via the Apple store and Android Play Store. For more information, please visit

  • Thank you everyone for the overwhelming response to our casino volunteer search! We received many more volunteer forms than there are positions to fill, so we did to our best to accommodate everyone although obviously not all who volunteered were placed in a shift. We truly appreciate the support from our members, you are all wonderful!

  • The long-awaited RAVE fanout system has arrived. This is a direct communication link to you, a rural crime watch member, from the local and provincial RCMP. This is their own direct to crime prevention groups fan out system.

    We encourage our members to follow this link to enroll in the RCMP direct Fan-out system, RAVE.

    One of our Rural Crime Watch Member signs for your yard.What is RAVE?
    RAVE is a web-based communication platform that RCMP officers are mandated to fan out real time alerts to community members in Alberta. Alerts are operational and educational in nature. They might look like BOLOs (Be On the Look Out), Crime Prevention, Victim Services, and District reports. Alerts are sent via email, text message or phone call - preference is on the account user.

    What are the Benefits?
    This communication can strengthen partnerships between volunteers, crime prevention organizations and police. Community members can assist police and be a useful resource to their local detachment and their respective community. RAVE will also be a useful educational tool for Crime Prevention and Victim Services information. Information is trusted and received in real time.

Watch for our Rural Crime Watch Community signs. We are watching out for each other.
