Grande Prairie RCMP holding town halls to help set 2023 focus

The Grande Prairie RCMP is holding five town halls around the city to connect with community members. Superintendent Lee Brachman says engaging directly with the community and hearing their perspectives on policing and community safety is important for the RCMP’s planning process.

“That feedback from the community is important because we want to make sure we are hitting the right notes so to speak,” Brachman says. “That the priorities we put in place are reflective of the needs of the community.”

He adds that the town halls also allow the RCMP to share an update on what RCMP officers are seeing.

“We give an update to as, what are the trends that we see in the city in terms of policing statistics, – what are we seeing in the communities. So we can open the door so we can see what people are seeing as well and we can have that conversation.”
