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.
Monday to Friday 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The Town of Legal is committed to neighbourhood development, including innovative and responsive community policing.
Knowing the real picture of neighbourhood crime reported to the RCMP is the first step in doing something about it. Neighbourhood crime is more than just numbers; it’s about knowing where crime is happening.
The RCMP Public Crime Map is provided by the Alberta RCMP's mapping unit.
The Crime Map is updated daily, Monday to Friday by the RCMP.

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 to encourage safe-keeping and inventory of items left outside in summer.
Here are some tips for keeping your personal property safe:
Make your home visible from the street so criminals have nowhere to hide
Turn on outside lights at night
Install a timer for lights
Don't leave keys in vehicles
Park recreational vehicles in locked garages or sheds. If you can't park indoors, park recreational vehicles in sight and chained to something
Install surveillance cameras
Engrave items with your name or a serial number
Keep records such as purchase receipts, appraisal reports, serial numbers and photographs of your valuables to help police identify your property if it is stolen
Follow a nightly checklist to ensure everything is locked up
Thorough reference checks if you are planning a renovation or considering hiring a dog-walker, pet-sitter, house-keeper or any other contractor that will have access to your home.
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.
