The Wood Buffalo RCMP Detachment has launched the 'NAME THE BOAT' contest for the youth of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo!!
In 2014, the Wood Buffalo Detachment added a Jet Boat to their fleet of enforcement vehicles. The addition of the boat has enhanced the RCMP’s ability to search for missing people, enforce boating regulations, and given members the opportunity to educate the general public on boat safety. Throughout the spring and summer months, the boat can be seen conducting patrols and responding to calls for assistance on the various waterways throughout the region.
The RCMP are challenging youth to come up with a creative name and provide a rationale for their selection, the winning name will then be displayed on the hull of the boat. The lucky winner of the contest will receive an exclusive boat ride-along for themselves and a friend, along with a cool RCMP prize pack.
To pick-up an entry form simply visit the RCMP Detachment in Timberlea or any local school administration office. All entries must be submitted by the deadline of April 15, 2015. For further contest details contact the Community Policing Coordinator, at 780-788-4245. ...

COMMUNITY CONSULTATION SESSION
TONIGHT - MARCH 10 at 7:00 PM
SYNCRUDE ATHLETIC PARK
As part of Wood Buffalo RCMP’s commitment to safer communities, the detachment is looking for input from members of the community to help determine what the Annual Performance Plan (policing priorities) for 2015-2016 will be. The Annual Performance Plan is used by RCMP Detachments across the country to assist in meeting the goal of secure and safe communities and focuses on areas where attention is needed to improve public safety and reduce crime.
To assist in gathering information, the RCMP and Bylaw Services have been hosting Consultation Sessions in communities throughout the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. The public is invited and encouraged to attend a session tonight, March 10th at 7:00 PM, at the Syncrude Athletic Park on Dominion Drive, to voice concerns while in turn providing input into the policing priorities.
Let’s work together towards a safer community! ...
