Municipality partners with Wood Buffalo RCMP to launch annual policing survey

Residents invited to share their thoughts on policing priorities for 2022 – 2023


The RMWB is partnering with RCMP to provide residents with a brief survey to share their thoughts on policing issues and what they would like RCMP to focus on during the coming year. In addition to responding to calls for services, Wood Buffalo RCMP establishes policing priorities annually, based on what the community identifies as being the most important.


“We were quite impressed with the responses from the last policing priorities survey, and look forward to learning how the community feels one year later,” says Superintendent Officer in Charge, Mark Hancock. “To me, it’s crucial that community members have a chance to share their thoughts about policing issues. Their insight is valuable to the work we do and helps us stay on the right track.”


The survey will be available Jan. 17 – Feb. 14, 2022 and can be completed one of four methods. Residents can complete the survey online, over the phone by contacting Pulse, in-person at Wood Buffalo RCMP, or by mailing the printed survey to the Fort McMurray Detachment. All information collected from the survey will be reviewed and considered by RCMP, RMWB Council and policing committees in the region before objectives are defined in the RCMP’s Annual Performance Plan.
