If you wish to participate in the conversation of our local detachment's policing priorities, the Town Policing Committee is here for you. Truly, our RCMP reinforces our feeling or safety in our community. Throughout the years, their fortitude has transformed our Town into one of the prosperous areas in the province. In addition, a vital service that our RCMP offers is victim services.  This plays an important role in reducing the negative impact of victimization.  This program aims to lessen the effects of trauma, enhances safety, encourages participation in the justice system, and prepares victims acting as witnesses for court proceedings.

 

OUR LOCAL DETACHMENT

Our municipal RCMP is committed to realizing these goals in a way that concretely impacts our community. Not only do they provide policing on a 24-hour basis, they are also active in community events and organizations. An example of this would be their participation in the Duke of Edinburgh award, an opportunity for our young leaders to cultivate the values of personal discovery, self-reliance, and responsibility. This award aims to empower and guide our youth by learning effective communication and goal setting in a team-centric environment. Another initiative that our local RCMP is involved with is the program called Two-wheel view. In this innovative endeavor, our officers help create avenues for our community youth to learn about valuable life lessons through educational bicycle programs and expeditions. The areas touched by this program include leadership, health and wellness, and self-esteem.

healthandsafety

We recognize health and safety as two intimately related issues that have a significant impact in the lives of the members of our community.

Through this, we have strategically identified various methods of cooperation that account for these two areas. More importantly, the devised means to combat threats in these issues are designed to create impact in both the small and the large scale.

This section aims to discuss health and safety in the concept of service that we, as an organization, adhere to.

If you aspire to keep our Town safe and the health of the members of our community in check, information in this section is vital. 

In the context of Town services, our objectives in health and safety are made possible by our effective coordination with RCMP and the Town Policing Committee.

Another way this is made possible is through our commitment with the agencies that have been mandated to promote a workplace environment that promotes the employee’s general welfare.

We have a strong commitment to keeping our community healthy and safe.

It is our hope that through the avenues above, the Town of Drumheller and its community continue to work together to make our Town a place where we can thrive.
