The RCMP enforces both provincial statutes and the Criminal Code of Canada. The Province of Alberta covers the expense of police services for all Alberta municipalities under 5,000 residents.
The Morinville RCMP detachment serves both urban and rural areas. The area is policed 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

RCMP Crime Prevention Calendar
Alberta RCMP has introduced a newly developed Crime Prevention Calendar. This calendar will be used across Alberta for education and public outreach.

Public safety is everyone's responsibility—and it's easy. The best way to do your part for public safety is to get connected to your neighbourhood, pay attention to what is going on around you and report any criminal or suspicious activity to the police.
Citizens of Patrol (COP) are active in Legal. COP’s goal is to be the look-out for any suspicious or criminal activity in and around the community, to record the activity, and where appropriate, to report such activities to the RCMP. Simply put, COP members act as additional “eyes and ears” for the community and the police which assists in reducing crime.
Help keep the Town of Legal safe by acting as a Citizen on Patrol.
Sturgeon Victim Services is a volunteer organization working in partnership with the Morinville RCMP to provide support, information and referrals to victims of crime or tragedy. Many resources are available by contacting this organization.
