In Alberta, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) serves as the provincial police force, as is the case in all provinces except Ontario and Quebec. 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.
The calendar provides monthly themes that will inform their messaging, and partner messaging, throughout the year. Each month's theme was chosen based on a combination of statistics, seasonality and public perception of issues.
The crime prevention theme for July is Theft from Yards.
The RCMP encourages safe keeping and inventory of items left outside in the summer.
Don’t be a target of property crime
Every summer police see an increase in thefts in seasonal recreational areas.
Property left in driveways, carports, backyards, or out at your summer properties are prime targets for thieves. Items such as boat motors, boats and trailers, personal water craft (Jet Ski’s), dirt bikes, motorbikes, scooters, and ATV’s should be stored and secured properly.
Many summer seasonal recreation items are portable, and valuable and are popular with thieves.
Do not store items on trailers.
Clean out your garage so you can use it to store your valuable items inside.
Purchase a trailer lock that cannot be cut by bolt cutters.
If you are away from your seasonal property for an extended period of time ensure it is well locked, windows are secured, and valuable items are removed.
Check your property periodically or make arrangements for someone to check it for you.
Remember! If you see something, say something!
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.
The Morinville RCMP can be reached at 780-939-4520 or in the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1.
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.
