Policing & Safe Community Committee
As a result of a community survey that took place in early 2021, Innisfail RCMP identified three strategic priorities for 2021. These are:
1) Property Crime
2) Youth Engagement
3) Safe & Respectful Community
Additional RCMP priorities also include traffic safety and pursuing innovative social solutions.
The Innisfail Policing & Safe Community Committee was created in 2019 as a means of employing a collaborative approach to community safety. With the aim of fostering the development of a safe and secure community, the committee acts as a link between and among Innisfail Town Council, Innisfail RCMP, Community Peace Officers, community members and other stakeholders. The committee will convene multiple times over the course of the next year to discuss and collaborate with authorities on some of the most important community safety issues as identified through ongoing public engagement.

A message from the Chair, February 2021
On behalf of the committee, I am pleased and excited to share some of our plans for the coming year! The committee’s mandate is to ‘foster and promote a safe and secure community’, which we intend on doing through ongoing collaboration with community members, members of Town council and administration, and the Innisfail RCMP.
While circumstances are such that the ability to host in-person engagements is somewhat limited at the moment, the committee still plans to talk to the community on an ongoing basis over the course of the year. During these engagements, we want to hear from you — tell us what’s on your mind and where your greatest concerns lie. Let’s explore collaborative and innovative solutions.
We’re hoping to commence the first of these engagements in the next few weeks, so keep an eye on the ‘Town Voice’ newspaper page for details. Alternatively, visit www.innisfail.ca/communitysafety online, where we’ll be regularly posting information on upcoming meetings, engagement opportunities and other information relating to committee activities.
Stay tuned and stay safe!
Sue Haddow, Committee Chair
