What is the police/RCMP doing to respond?

The safety and security of our community has always and will continue to be the top priority for Red Deer RCMP. During these uncertain times, Red Deer RCMP is ready to respond to all potential situations while continuing with regular operations including intelligence-led policing. As always, if you require emergency police assistance, call 9-1-1. To report a crime, or suspicious activity call 403-343-5575.

Are there changes to traffic enforcement?

We are redeploying traffic enforcement in ways that respond to current needs. Residents must still abide by speed limits and traffic safety measures. Automated traffic enforcement measures will be increasingly used in high risk and playground areas in an effort to protect those who are using our park spaces and playgrounds.

Will this have an effect on RCMP response?

No, police service levels remain the same and Red Deer RCMP stand ready to serve the community as normal.
