Red Deer, Alta. - The Red Deer RCMP Crime Reduction Team (CRT) arrested 39 people and executed 121 warrants last week during a four-day warrant round-up, clearing a total of 163 charges. 3 stolen vehicles were recovered, and 3 Pinpoint persons were arrested as a part of the warrant round-up.
Between December 10 and 13, CRT members targeted repeat offenders linked to property and drug offences, in keeping with the 2018-2020 Annual Policing Plan focus on crime reduction in the areas of property and drugs.
“Warrant round-ups are a tool that we continue to use because they are effective. As a part of Project Pinpoint, the Red Deer RCMP’s targeted crime reduction strategy, we use round-ups to let our repeat offenders know that if they continue to commit crimes, we will catch them,” says Sergeant Karyn Kay of the Red Deer RCMP.
The warrant round-up was undertaken by the Red Deer RCMP Crime Reduction Team, General Investigation Section (GIS) and general duty police officers, with significant support from municipal staff members including criminal analysts and watch clerks.
