MESSAGE FROM - RCMP
The Three Hills RCMP Detachment is attempting a new endeavor and
looking for assistance from residents.
When there is a break-in or theft in a business area, the RCMP can use surveillance footage to track the stolen items. In residential areas this is more difficult without access to residential security systems.
The RCMP wants to build a secure and confidential directory of residents with video surveillance. This will allow the RCMP to contact those residents who are on the list to obtain their residential footage when necessary to help locate stolen items.
Any residents in Kneehill County interested in participating by placing their names on this secure list, can call Constable Ferrier at the RCMP Detachment office at 403-443-5539 or send her an email at
