Grande Prairie District Rural Crime Watch Association works collaboratively with law enforcement to prevent crime through education, information, and presence in rural communities.
We are a volunteer rural community crime prevention program and currently have members ranging from the County of Grande Prairie to the Municipal District of Greenview. Membership costs $10/year but anyone who sees something “odd, out of place, strange, or dangerous” can call us at 780-831-4390.
Due to the vast expanse of our rural world, we work in conjunction with local RCMP, County Enforcement, Fish & Wildlife, other crime prevention groups, and the Provincial Rural Crime Watch Association by being another set of eyes and ears to assist these groups in alerting, deterring, preventing, or stopping criminal activity in our rural back yards.
The Executive meets monthly and all the members are invited to two meetings per year – the Annual General Meeting (held in the March/April timeframe) and the Fall Meeting (usually held in the November timeframe).
Grande Prairie District Rural Crime Watch Association will be holding their Fall Meeting on November 8, 2017 in the Webster Hall. The doors will open at 5:30 pm and a potluck supper will follow at 6 pm. We will have a guest speaker, an RCMP update, and then the meeting itself to follow. All are welcome. Memberships may be purchased/renewed at this meeting.
