Visible and Invisible Ghouls

Kids at Halloween

On Halloween, Peace Officers and Police will be out all night patrolling neighbourhoods. For everyone’s safety, they recommend that all kids are dressed warmly and are highly visible.

“Even if you’re planning to be a ghost or goblin, it’s important to be a ghoul we can see!” says Chestermere Peace Officer Shawn Press. “Especially if your kids have a black or dark costume, we recommend adding reflective tape to their outfits so they can be seen by motorists,” says Press.

In addition to keeping an eye on traffic, Protective Services are available to help with any concerns from parents and children.

“If children are lost or parents have any questions, we are here to help.”

Help Catch Invisible Criminals

After Halloween, RCMP attention turns to catching invisible ghouls: criminals breaking into homes and vehicles. And they are looking to you to help...

If you have a surveillance system in your home, you can help the RCMP solve these crimes by signing up for the voluntary Home Security Registry.

After a crime has been reported, RCMP can review the registry and identify homes in the vicinity of a crime. From there, they may ask those registered to review their home security footage to determine if their cameras caught anything related to the crime.

“The goal is to identify potential points where evidence of a crime may have been captured,” says Chestermere RCMP Detachment Commander S/Sgt. Wielgosz. “This reduces the amount of time investigators spend trying to obtain sources of evidence to identify offenders.”

While they are looking to add many more residents to the registry, the program has already been effective.

“In the past we have seen success with early identification of suspects which resulted in charges,” says S/Sgt. Wielgosz.

Interested in being a criminal ghost- buster?

Joining the Registry is just a quick call to the Chestermere RCMP Detachment at (403) 204-8777.
