RCMP Crime map

A new online tool, the RCMP Crime Map enables us to share up-to-date information on criminal incidents.  Neighbourhood crime isn’t just about numbers; it’s about knowing where crime is happening in our region. This new tool gives residents an opportunity to be an extra set of eyes and ears for the Whitecourt RCMP.

To report suspicious activity, contact the RCMP Administration Line at 780-778-5900.

Get Reel Video Contest

Whitecourt launched the Get Reel Video contest in 2016, and awarded prizes to 3 submissions in early 2017.  The contest was open to local students (grades 9 to 12) from Hilltop and St. Joseph School. Youth were asked to produce a 3-5 minute video on one of three trending topics: fentanyl, meth and date rape. Congratulations to all the winners - and thank you to everyone that participated!
