In an effort to help reduce and prevent crime, the Leduc RCMP is encouraging all citizens, both municipally and in the County to report crimes when they occur.

The RCMP supports the planning of different initiatives, whether they be in relation to impaired driving, property crimes or habitual offender management. To effectively plan these initiatives, accurate reporting of crimes must occur so there is a true sense of what is happening in the community.

Your information could be used to prevent other crimes and help keep other people safe. Accurate data and crime statistics can also assist with better resource planning, effective resource allocation, and operational responses.

“We are never too busy to take a report,” says Inspector Kevin Kunetzki, Officer in Charge of Leduc RCMP Detachment.

“Often we find that information reported in one instance, even if small in nature, can be considered together with information from another crime to help us solve a much larger or trending issue in the community. It is as simple as that.”

If you want to report a crime, please call the Leduc RCMP at 780-980-7267. If have information about a crime that’s been committed and you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS.
