The Okotoks Range Patrol Association merged with the DeWinton Rural Crime Watch Association in 2004, to form Okotoks Area Range Patrol and Crime Watch Association. In 2013 the name was changed to Okotoks Area Rural Crime Watch Association. The Association is a non-profit society for members of the public who want to help reduce crime in our area, by keeping a watchful eye out and reporting suspicious activity to the RCMP and Natural Resources (formerly Fish & Wildlife). The Association is sponsored by the RCMP, The Farmer's Advocate Office, the Alberta Cattle Commission, Western Stock Growers, Natural Resources, and the Department of Justice and serves an area of over 270 square miles around Okotoks.
A member of the Alberta Rural Crime Watch Association.
HOW WE REDUCE CRIME
With limited resources, the police cannot be everywhere. Members of the Association can help make our communities safer by directing police attention towards any unusual or possibly criminal activities. And you don't have to do anything different or special - just keep your eyes and ears open, and report right away. You could be the person to provide the information that prevents a crime, or solves a case!
