Residents of Leduc County have shown interest in reviving the Rural Crime Watch Program. On Tuesday, April 26 the Leduc Rural Crime Watch Association voted unanimously to include Leduc County West (west of Buford Road, Range Road 275) which will replace the disbanded Strawberry Crime Watch of the 1980’s. This initiative is supported by Leduc County.

Times have changed more acreages, younger population growth and society in general have required more community issues relating to quality of lifestyle. Public meetings will be held throughout the region with guest speakers and topics to meet community needs. Two Leduc Rural Crime Watch meetings will be held in the west to keep their members up to date.

Residents from villages, towns and locals are welcome to join as members (Thorsby, Warburg, North Shore of Pigeon Lake).

The Leduc Rural Crime Watch Association is a non-profit organization, working in collaboration with the RCMP and communities. The programs enhance crime prevention efforts in the community.

When you register for your membership: Have your legal land description or municipal address and $15 (cheque or cash) available. The $15 membership fee includes a lifetime membership, one year fanout service, gate and fence signs and a yearly newsletter. Renewal of the fan out service is $10 per year or $25 for three years.

WANTED: Volunteers to serve on the board of directors. Volunteers are also needed to help with the registration of new members and meeting preparation (hall bookings). Please call Ruth Harrison at 780-789-2181.

This upcoming May long weekend, we will be in the big tent on Main Street in Thorsby. Remember to bring your legal land description, municipal address and $15 (cash or cheque) to register.

“The community crime watch is an excellent crime reduction strategy supported by the RCMP in the communities. I look forward to this endeavour moving forward and the RCMP working with their community in efforts to reduce crime,” stated Sgt. Corey Kyle, Thorsby/Breton RCMP detachment.

Leduc County Rural Crime Watch is a proud member of the Alberta Provincial Rural Crime Watch Association.
