Rural Crime Map Goes Live

February 11, 2021

What’s a Crime Map?

This crime map is a tool provided and managed by the Alberta RCMP which enables citizens to access current and verified information regarding crime in the area.  The RCMP hope that the map will encourage citizens to develop sound crime prevention habits for their families and communities, and encourage citizens to report suspicious activities.

Note

  • You must agree to the conditions before the map will load.
  • The map is updated daily and the incidents remain on the map for 14 days.
  • Zoom out to see more of Alberta.
  • Visit the map anytime at https://hanna.ca/crime-map
  • Any questions are to be directed to the local detachment.
