Crime and Crime Statistics in the Riverbend Area
The Edmonton Police Services has recently introduced a new web based crime mapping program. You can link to it from their main webpage at http://crimemapping.edmontonpolice.ca/ and following the instructions. You will notice that there have been some recent break and entries and also some assaults in the area.
There has been a significant increase in theft from auto, break and enter and theft of auto in a number of Riverbend communities during the last few weeks; in particular Ramsey Heights, Rhatighan Ridge, Carter Crest, Terwillegar Towne and South Terwillegar. This may be a trend that could move into Brookview.
Although there will be a greater police presence in the area, we have to rely upon residents in the Riverbend/Terwillegar area to take some simple and straight forward steps to reduce the opportunity for crime to occur. A few basic rules include:Do not leave valuables in your parked vehicle. Do not leave an extra set of keys in your vehicle. If you leave your vehicle parked outside overnight, remove the garage door opener. There have been occurrences where vehicles are broken into and then the garage door opener is used to access the attached garage. Do not leave your garage door open overnight. If you see suspicious persons or suspicious activity in the area, please give police a call.
Residents can check the Edmonton Police Service Crime Map on the internet to have current information on recent crime trends.
