About the Map

The new online map enables the Alberta RCMP to share current criminal incidents with members of the communities they serve across Alberta.

Crime Reduction
The RCMP hopes that the map will help encourage citizens to report suspicious activity to the police which will strengthen their intelligence gathering capability and help them make arrests.
