Survey asking residents where RCMP should prioritize

The municipality is partnering with the Wood Buffalo RCMP to gathering residents’ thoughts on policing issues in the community.

A simple six question survey was released on Jan. 17 to see where residents believe policing should be focused this year.

Residents are asked to choose which three policies they believe need more attention:

  • Traffic Safety
  • Distracted driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Property crime and theft
  • Domestic violence
  • Rural and Indigenous community engagement
  • Illegal drug-related offences
  • Crime reduction strategies
  • Youth/school engagement
  • Community policing
  • Other

Superintendent Officer in Charge, Mark Hancock said, “We were quite impressed with the responses from the last policing priorities survey, and look forward to learning how the community feels one year later. To me, it’s crucial that community members have a chance to share their thoughts about policing issues. Their insight is valuable to the work we do and helps us stay on the right track.”

The survey will run from Jan. 17 till Feb. 14, and can be completed online or by contacting pulse, in-person at the Wood Buffalo RCMP, or by mailing the printed survey to the Fort McMurray Detachment.
