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.

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.
March is National Fraud Prevention Month.
Here are some quick facts on fraud prevention:
Fraud Prevention Month is an annual awareness campaign that empowers Canadians with the information they need to recognize, reject and report fraud.
Since 1983, Option consommateurs promotes and defends the interests of consumers and ensures that their interests are respected. They take a close interest in questions related to personal finances, financial services, business practices and private life, among others.
The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre is the central agency in Canada that collects information and criminal intelligence fraud.
The Canada Revenue Agency regularly communicates with Canadians through various channels. To help you identify legitimate communications from the CRA, be aware of these guidelines and know what to expect when the CRA contacts you.
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.
