A local crime prevention group is looking for some help with a community awareness video.

The rural crime watch group is interested in updating their community awareness video, as the previous version dates back to the 1960’s, according to volunteer and Rosebrier Rural Crime Watch member Tully Johnson.

He said members at a recent meeting discussed updating the video, which is a useful tool for spreading the word on crime prevention.

However, some of the rural crime issues nowadays, such as ATV thefts, were mostly unknown when the previous video was made.

Johnson said the crime watch is looking for someone with video experience to help them make the new 10 minute movie and Johnson said the group has a government grant to help pay for the production.

The video would be used for community presentations, meetings, display booths and anywhere rural crime watch can spread the word about crime prevention.

Those interested should call Johnson at 780-352-6379 and leave a message, or email ballranch@xplornet.ca.
