NEW RCMP Crime Map

RCMP Crime Map - Camrose
Camrose County is hosting the RCMP Crime Map on the County Website. The map shows the last 14 days of crime data which the general public can view.
Crime mapping helps law enforcement by encouraging Albertans to participate in crime prevention strategies, such as reporting suspicious persons or activity, in an effort to be the extra set of eyes and ears for police in our community. Only certain crime types will be presented on the map:
Theft from Motor Vehicle;
Theft of Motor Vehicle;
Theft over / under $5000;
Break & Enter;
Mischief; and
Missing Persons. 

Some other important information to note:

Emergency Situation Flag.
Flags would only be used in emergency situations and for very short periods (School Lockdown, unfolding dangerous situation, Evacuation, Train Derailment etc.)
Plotted addresses will not be exact but rather a nearby intersection or street.
Entries are templated – only certain information can be entered (i.e. File Number and Date)
Entries will automatically be removed after 14 days.
Clicking the link on the website will take you to the Camrose County area on the site, but you can scroll around the map and see other areas that are also participating.
