Rural Crime Prevention

In response to concerns about rural crime in the area, Sturgeon County is hosting a series of meetings for residents to learn more about crime prevention resources and strategies.

There will be presentations from the RCMP, Sturgeon County Protective Services, Victim Services, and Rural Crime Watch. You will learn about rural crime statistics, current RCMP initiatives and what you can do to prevent crime on your property. The presentations will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions.
