The Rural Crime Watch Program was designed to reduce the incidence of crime in all rural areas and to create a more thorough understanding and awareness of the laws. It is completely voluntary involving all rural residents working in cooperation with their local RCMP detachments.
There are 3 chapters within Greenview that residents can belong to depending on location.
These chapters include:

Seniors Guidebook to Safety and Security is a publication provided by the RCMP. This guide is for seniors, their family members, caregivers, friends, and anyone else who may find it useful. It is not meant to include everything but tries to answer some common concerns when it comes to seniors’ safety and security. Our goal is to raise awareness of seniors’ safety issues to improve their quality of life.
The information in this guide can also be used to help people and their loved ones discuss this topic to help recognize a potential crime situation and show how to reduce or remove the risk.

Alberta Community Crime Prevention Association was established in 1989 as the Alberta Community Police Advisory Committee by provincial Police Services as a means to discuss mutual crime-related issues within communities/police/government. In 1990 it became the Alberta Community Crime Prevention Association (ACCPA).
ACCPA’s goal is to ensure safety to Albertans and their communities through education and crime prevention awareness. We do this by:
- Acting as the ” information hub” of crime prevention initiatives for the province
- Coordinating an Annual Crime Prevention conference with keynote speakers and workshops
- Promoting Crime Prevention week
- Coordinating Fraud Prevention Month
For more information on ACCPA, please visit: Alberta Community Crime Prevention Association
Everyone benefits when we look out for each other.
Protecting Alberta’s rural communities is a collective responsibility. Pick up the phone and report crime and suspicious activity to your local RCMP detachment, or go online to report eligible property crimes at Online Property Crime Reporting
