SARM Working Towards Provincial Rural Crime Watch Association
Last week, SARM hosted a meeting with stakeholders to discuss the creation of a provincial Rural Crime Watch association. Representatives from SARM, the RCMP, the provincial government, and several Rural Crime Watch groups were in attendance. From that meeting, a working group has been appointed to spearhead the initiative.
“SARM has been pleased to see the Rural Crime Watch program grow to nearly 100 active groups in just over a year,” said President Ray Orb. “As the program grows, it is becoming clear there is a need for a provincial association to provide support and encourage consistency to crime watch groups across the province.”
SARM has been working closely with the RCMP to reinvigorate the Rural Crime Watch program since 2016. Rural Crime Watch is a community driven, community led crime prevention and reduction program, supported by the RCMP. Volunteers observe, record and report any unusual or suspicious activities with members and the RCMP.
