For the week of July 12 through July 18, 2021, the Beaumont RCMP responded to 61 calls for service. Some of the calls for service include break and enter, dangerous driving, trespass act, wellbeing check, liquor act, false alarms, suspicious persons/vehicles, assault, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, theft under $5,000 and uttering threats.
The Beaumont RCMP conducted 37 traffic stops, resulting in two charges under the Traffic Safety Act.
Beaumont RCMP and Community Peace Officers conducting proactive traffic enforcement have charged several suspended/prohibited drivers and seized their vehicles. Speed and intersection enforcement reduces collisions. This past weekend, speed and running stop signs has been a factor in several fatal collisions. We thank the public for reporting speeding and other provincial violations to the RCMP, as this helps us focus on troubled areas within Beaumont.
The theme for August in the Alberta RCMP Crime Reduction Calendar is theft from vehicle and theft of vehicle. During your #9PM routine, please check your vehicle, remove all valuables and ensure the vehicle is locked. Did you know that if you have a keyless push start system for your vehicle and you leave your vehicle running, anyone can drive it away. You only need the key in the vicinity to start the vehicle but do not need it to drive it away.
Beaumont residents are encouraged to view the RCMP Crime Mapping tool and can access the map through the City of Beaumont’s website at https://www.beaumont.ab.ca/532/Beaumont-RCMP-Crime-Map.
The Beaumont RCMP encourages the public to report all criminal and suspicious activity. In case of an emergency, call 911, and for non-urgent reports, call the Beaumont RCMP Detachment complaint line at 780-929-7400. Your report helps us know where to look, who to look for and where to patrol in the future.
