The Rural Crime Watch Program was designed to reduce the incidence of crime in all rural areas and to create a more thorough understanding and awareness of the laws. It is completely voluntary involving all rural residents working in cooperation with their local RCMP detachments.
County of Northern Lights Council is supportive of the Rural Crime Watch Program and will assist in presenting awareness education through its newsletter and social media outlets and by encouraging participation in the program by offering free Rural Crime Watch and No Trespassing signs to all County residents who register for the Rural Crime Program.
The local chapter that County residents will belong to is called the Northern Sunrise RCW. Awareness & Education in the program extends to:
- Emails on what is happening in the community regarding crime
- Home Renovation Fraud
- Cheque Fraud
- Employee Theft & Fraud
- Mortgage Fraud
- Identity Theft & many more topics.
County residents will need to come to the Manning Office to register for the Program and to receive their signs. The County will not mail out signs. To view the program in detail visit: www.ruralcrimewatch.ab.ca
