It will be interesting to hear from rural Albertans on this….
The province says ever since rural crime-reduction units were rolled out——RCMP have made more than 5-hundred arrests–and laid more than 16-hundred charges….
On average—each suspect is facing at least three charges….
RCMP say since January—-property crimes have dropped by 9-percent…
That doesnt cover fraud, mischief and arson.
But have residents actually noticed a drop in the rural crime rate?
