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 Alberta RCMP has launched a mobile app that is available for iOS and Android devices. The app has been developed to simplify online user experiences on mobile devices to ensure that Albertans can access information quickly and conveniently.
The app is free to download through Apple or Google Play.
According to the Alberta RCMP, “Developing the app allows the Alberta RCMP to provide the public with online access to news, crime reporting, detachment locations, crime mapping and statistics, and a map for initiatives like Project Lock Up. The app also provides access to partner law enforcement services, mental health supports, Crime Stoppers and links to Alberta RCMP social media accounts.”
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 December is Mail Theft: Protecting your mail around the holidays
The holiday season is a busy time for couriers, Canada Post and mail thieves. Some tips to keep your mail safe include:
Don’t leave mail in a mailbox. Collect your mail promptly after delivery. Unattended mail is a treasure trove of personal information for potential thieves.
Do not have parcels delivered to your home when you are not present. Arrange to have them either delivered to your work place, left at the mailing depot or dropped off at trusted friends place or neighbours home. You may also consider investing in a lock box for secure parcel delivery.
Do not send cash in the mail and track your shipments.
Consider installing video surveillance.
Don’t just recycle. Shred documents that contain personal financial information, such as statements and credit card offers.
If there is a damaged or tampered with mailbox, contact Canada Post to report it.
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.
