The Enhanced RCMP Unit is contracted to the County to provide a variety of policing services and community programs including:

Crime reduction
The Enhanced RCMP Unit conduct proactive crime reduction patrols to keep our communities safe. 
Specialized patrols
Enhanced RCMP and Community Peace Officers use mountain bikes, ATVs, snowmobiles and a jet boat to ensure safety and provide a visible presence in the County's green spaces and parklands.
Special events policing
The Enhanced RCMP Unit provides policing services to ensure safety at large special events. If you are planning an event that may require special events policing contact the Enhanced RCMP a year in advance.
Emergency management
The Enhanced RCMP Unit works with the Grande Prairie Regional Emergency Partnership (GPREP) to address any local emergencies in the community.
Citizens on Patrol (COP) Program
The Citizens On Patrol (COP) Program allows you to volunteer and help to keep our neighbourhoods safe. If you participate in this program, you would report any petty crimes and report them to the Enhanced RCMP Unit. 
 Alberta Rural Crime Watch
