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:

• Follow a nightly checklist to ensure everything is locked up
