The City of Red Deer and RCMP’s 2024-26 Annual Policing Plan survey is closing on Friday (Feb. 9).
Through the survey, Red Deerians can share their experiences and concerns relating to crime and safety in the community.
The plan incorporates public feedback and crime data into the outline of the RCMP’s local priorities and areas of focus over two years.
“We are asking all community members to share their experiences with us,” Holly Glassford, Red Deer RCMP Superintendent said. “While crime statistics and data are the foundation to our policing priorities, it is also incredibly important that we understand what Red Deerians are experiencing so our policing priorities reflect the needs of our community.”
The last plan outlined three priorities including enhancing police response and visibility, property crime reduction, and increased engagement with community partners.
“We have had great success with the 2022-24 plan’s policing priorities,” Glassford said. “We’re looking forward to getting the results of this survey, as it will help us understand how our policing initiatives have changed the way Red Deerians are experiencing safety in our community.”
The RCMP will work with Red Deer City Council to determine the top policing priorities of the community, before the plan takes effect on April 1.
