Public Facing Crime Map
The RCMP has rolled out a new online map that enables the Alberta RCMP to share current criminal incidents with members of communities. The database can be accessed to display current crime occurrences. The RCMP hopes that the map will help encourage citizens to report suspicious activity to the police which will strengthen our intelligence gathering capability and help us make arrests.
