Yellowhead Rural Crime Watch will strive to promote rural crime prevention through communication and programs.


BASIC ELEMENTS OF RURAL CRIME WATCH

Home & building security  ~  Property identification  ~  Report-a-Poacher

Citizens on Patrol  ~  Insurance Fraud


Rural crime needs to be fought in a different way to crime in cities and towns. What might be a standard response in major centers may not work in the countryside or small towns and villages.  On the other hand, rural communities can provide opportunities that may not exist in the city. Where people know and care for each other, anyone behaving suspiciously is more likely to be noticed. And where crime is rare, individual incidents still generate a sense of shock and outrage, which can spur people on to do something to stop it happening again.

 

MEMBERS RESPONSIBILITY

  • Become a member of Yellowhead Rural Crime Watch
  • Familiarize yourself with the types of vehicles and working times of your neighbors and report unusual vehicles & activity to the RCMP
  • Report a poacher
  • Inventory and mark your belongings
  • Display your Crime Watch signs

WHO PAYS FOR CRIME?

EVERYBODY!

Loss of property, loss of production for farmers, ranchers and business, an increase in insurance premium costs, depleted fish and wildlife, not to mention the emotional impact on victims of these crimes.  Criminal activity can be reduced through co-operative efforts of Crime Watch and law enforcement agencies.

 

HELP MAKE YOUR COMMUNITY A SAFER PLACE TO LIVE.

JOIN YOUR LOCAL CRIME WATCH ASSOCIATION AND GET INVOLVED.


We enjoy a cooperative relationship with the members and staff of the Evansburg Detachment.  We work together with the RCMP to ensure that Yellowhead Rural Crime Watch flourishes and that we are able to assist in reducing the crime rate in the Detachment area.

Yellowhead Rural Crime Watch was formed in 1982 and now has a membership of well over 300.  An initial membership fee of $20.00 is paid when making application to Crime Watch.  Thereafter, in lieu of regular fundraising activities, a $20.00 annual fee is required to assist with the maintenance and operation of the association.  Due to the local demographics, the largest expense for the organization is the phone bills. Membership is open to all town and rural residents.  Regular meetings are held the second Tuesday of April, June, September and November, 7:30 p.m. at the Entwistle Seniors Centre in Entwistle.  The Annual General Meeting and Potluck supper is held in February and usually in Heritage House in Evansburg.

The Crime Watch computer is used to communicate information about criminal activity received from the RCMP to members and reminders regarding upcoming meetings.  Fan outs are sent both by phone and by email.

The RCMP has final approval on all applicants.  As soon as the membership has been cleared, your name, phone number and residence location is entered into the computer data bank.  A kit, which contains fence signs, information and a numbered membership card, will be issued.
