Alberta RCMP provides update on detachment services amidst COVID-19 spread

There has been no change to the Alberta RCMP’s response to critical and emergency matters

In light of recent developments and evolving information surrounding the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), Alberta RCMP detachments and offices may defer or arrange to provide alternatives for certain services normally delivered in a detachment.

“These measures are being taken as the safety of Albertans and our employees is our number one priority,” noted a release.

“This practice will be evaluated on a regular basis and the public will be notified when normal business resumes.”

There has been no change to the Alberta RCMP’s response to critical and emergency matters. “We remind the public to please continue to call 911 in these situations.”

Detachment front counter services (reports of non-injury vehicle collisions, providing statements, fingerprinting for Criminal Records checks) may be deferred to help maintain social distancing as prescribed by Alberta Health (www.Alberta.ca/COVID19).

“Before proceeding to a detachment, it is important that you please phone the administrative line to verify which services are available (http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/detach/en/find/AB#wb-cont).

“As always, if you are feeling unwell or are experiencing any of the symptoms consistent with COVID-19, please stay at home. Public safety is our top priority. The Alberta RCMP thanks the public for their patience during these exceptional circumstances.”
