Rimbey RCMP respond to 42 calls of service over the last week

Rimbey RCMP would also like to thank responsible pet owners who care for and respect others safety

In the last week Rimbey RCMP responded to 42 calls for service. These calls include but are not limited to: three reports of theft; five reports of uttering threats, one assault, and one assault with a weapon.

On July 18, a young girl and her dog were attacked and bitten by a neighbour’s dog on a rural property in Ponoka County. Unfortunately, the young girl required urgent medical attention, as did her dog. The investigation revealed that the “neighbour” was not able to, or opted not to control their aggressive dog to ensure harm did not come to anyone, or another dog. Rimbey RCMP would like to thank those responsible pet owners who care for their animals and respect the safety, and well-being of others.

Even though property crime has been trending down in the Rimbey area, this is no time to let down your guard. The following are some tips to keep personal property safe:

• 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 a detailed list of property including photos and serial numbers

• Follow a nightly checklist to ensure everything is locked up

If you have information on this or any other crime, contact your local RCMP Detachment at 403-843-2224 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Crime Stoppers can also be contacted online at, or you can download the P3 Tips app for Android or Apple on your smart phone. You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers. If you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash award.
