Cochrane Foothill Protective Association – Rural Crime Watch - JAN 2022


There is an APP for that!!!

With all of the Apps that are available in the “Stores” for shopping, getting event tickets, watching investments, games, and any other manner of things that we may want, were you aware there are some key Crime Prevention and Information Apps that are available?  An App provides an easy way for everyone to report crimes, have information at your fingertips and keep up to date with news.  We would like to highlight a few for you.


Alberta Rural Crime Watch App

iOS and Android - is an App that contains phone numbers for all rural RCMP Detachments in Alberta and can call up the non-emergency reporting phone number can be dialled with a touch of a button. This APP also uses the location services, to determine where you are and brings up the nearest RCMP Detachment to your location. Crime now no boundaries and neither should your reporting of suspicious activity.   Imagine, any rural RCMP Detachment on your speed dial!!!!

Also in this App is a link to the RCMP on-line reporting, Crime Prevention tips, Report – a Poacher on-line reporting link, and resources for many Agency contacts such as Mental Health, Elder Abuse, Bullying, to name a few.  There is also a link to a Crime Prevention Information blog. 


Search Alberta Rural Crime Watch in the App Store to download.
Alberta RCMP App – the Alberta RCMP just released their App, this past week, to help keep Albertans informed on Crime Stats, the Crime Map, and RCMP News Bulletins.  There is information on the location of Project Lock Up locations, Crime Stoppers along with a link to the on-line Crime Reporting as well. 

This App is formatted for both iOS and Android.  Search Alberta RCMP to download. 

Both of these Apps apply to the Province of Alberta news and items, and are a wealth of information. 
To bring reporting a bit closer to home, the CFPA has the Reporter APP, which all Members can access and is a part of their Membership.  CFPA developed this reporting platform to allow Members to report suspicious activity locally and keep other Members aware of activity and incidents, in your own “backyard"

This is an information site only and is not tied into any RCMP reporting databases.  If you post it on Reporter, then also phone the RCMP to notify of the activity. 

Should you wish to have more on Crime Prevention information, or any of these apps, please feel free to visit the CFPA Website or email.

We hope you will check out these tools and encourage you to use the on-line Crime Reporting or the Report a Poacher tool, should this be a better way for you to report suspicious activity.

The site has been around for over a decade now and is currently being updated and revised to better reflect the Springbank area and its broad and varied community. We plan on adding Facebook to the site, as well as building a complete listing of area services and businesses, along with public interest articles, local history, and upcoming events. The site also allows for personal adds, and is meant to complement the SPFAS site and recreational activities now covered. We invite your input/comments as we go forward in helping to build our great community!
