It's that time of year again! The Alberta Provincial Rural Crime Watch Association 2018/19 Calendars are now available.
Those of you already familiar with the calendars know they are made up of drawings submitted by students to their local crime watch chapters, with first place winners featured in the calendar. School aged children throughout rural Alberta were asked to share their thoughts on crime prevention and fish and wildlife protection in their community. Not surprisingly, their messages about this topic are astute and endearing.
These calendars run the school year (Sept 1 - Aug 31) and are filled with useful tips for students about bullying, cyber issues, etc. Click the button below to download a pdf version to print out at home.

Is Your Home Sending the Right Message?
Home is sweet when you feel safe.
We can all do a lot to make our homes safer. every homeowner or renter can protect themselves from thieves, vandals, and home invasions. The first step is to get to know your neighbours so you can watch out for each other. This works in every community, whether you live in a house or an apartment.
Next, do a safety check on your home. You can get a checklist of safety standards and tips by contacting your local police service. Some safety changes are small home improvements. Others are just about paying attention.
You should also record the serial numbers of your valuables, mark them with your driver's license number or name, and keep a list of these items.
Get your home assessed for security
Parkland County Enforcement Services offer a unique service for residents of Parkland County: you can have your home assessed for a security evaluation at no cost. To have your home assessed for security, simply contact Community Peace Officer Jean Hoffman by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
What is SCAN?
ALERT's Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods (SCAN) unit makes communities safer by using civil legislation to target residential and commercial problem properties in rural and urban Alberta where specified illegal activity is occurring regularly. This includes drug trafficking, prostitution, and gang related crime. SCAN holds owners accountable for activity taking place on their property and supports landlords by helping them remove problem tenants who disrupt neighbourhoods and destroy property.
A resource for communities across Alberta, the unit initiates investigations based on citizen tips and works in partnership with residents to increase safety.
