Slave Lake, Alberta - The Slave Lake RCMP is pleased to announce the rollout of an interactive crime map accessible to the general public. The new online map enables the Slave Lake RCMP to share current criminal incidents with members of the community. The hope is that the use of this map will encourage citizens to report suspicious activity in their neighbourhoods thereby strengthening the detachment's intelligence gathering capabilities.
The RCMP chose crimes that residences have the greatest opportunity to reduce by practising crime reduction strategies; these are mainly property crimes. Data from selected crimes will be entered into the database daily. These statistics will be visible to the public for a period of fourteen days.
The link to the interactive crime map is accessible through the Town of Slave Lake web page and social media.
