The Drumheller and District Rural Crime Watch Association are looking for new members to help with coverage of the area. With the first year membership you get a gate sign and a post sign. If you would like to join you can get an application form from the website, www.drumcrimewatch.com, or contact Dorothy Gwynn at crimewatch@ starland- county.com. There is a website, facebook page, twitter account and the phone tree where we can call, email or text people with fanout information about criminal activities in the area and when the meetings are held. There is also a quarterly newsletter which will be sent out by email to members. Members of the Rural Crime Watch are the eyes and ears of the community. With the rise in criminal activity across the province it is important for everyone to be aware of what is happening in their community and surrounding areas. The next meeting is April 20 in the upstairs meeting room at Freson Bros. at 7:00 pm.
