Policing & Safe Community Committee

Home 9 Policing & Safe Community Committee
The 2022 Innisfail Community Safety Survey results are now available!
CLICK HERE to download a summary of the results.

Based on the 2022 survey, Innisfail RCMP identified three strategic priorities for this year:

1) Crime Prevention, with a focus on the areas of property and vehicle theft
2) Community Engagement, with a focus on in-person engagement
3) Visibility, with a focus on multi-agency traffic safety operations.

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

Innisfail is a wonderful town with citizens who have shown that the safety of their community is important. The overall objective of the Policing and Safe Community Committee is to act as a liaison between the Town Council, the RCMP detachment, Community Peace Officers and the citizens of Innisfail to foster the creation of a safe, secure community. By meeting with all parties involved, the committee, on behalf of the citizens of Innisfail, helps to voice concerns and set priorities for protective services in our community. 

The main action goal of our committee has been to improve communication and opportunities for discussion and interaction between the community and the Town, RCMP and Municipal Enforcement. We were able to host our first open house and hope to plan another for later this year to encourage greater attendance. This year’s RCMP goals include: crime prevention (focused on vehicle theft), community engagement and visibility in the community. Each year, in partnership with the Town and RCMP, a safety survey is sent out prior to the setting of priorities – watch for that in March/April. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out to one of the committee members, or send the committee an email through the “Get In Touch” section on the website. 

Keep an eye on the ‘Town Voice’ newspaper page for notable dates and information. Alternatively, visit this webpage where we’ll be regularly posting information on upcoming meetings, meeting recordings, engagement opportunities and other information relating to committee activities. Keep an eye out for your neighbours and report all unsafe activity.
