    Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a multi-disciplinary approach to crime prevention that uses urban and architectural design and the management of built and natural environments.

    CPTED strategies aim to reduce victimization, deter offender decisions that precede criminal acts, and build a sense of community among inhabitants so they can gain territorial control of areas, reduce crime, and minimize fear of crime.

    CPTED is pronounced ‘sep-ted’ and it is also known around the world as Designing Out Crime, defensible space, and other similar terms.


    Parkland County Enforcement Services provides CPTED property assessments at no cost to the property owner. Call our complaint line and request your own assessment at 780-968-8400.

  • Be Aware Of Paving Scams

    In the spring of 2023 Parkland County Enforcement Services received a number of complaints regarding suspicious and/or potential scams related to paving services and contracts.

    We are reminding residents to exercise diligence and caution when retaining contractor services. Keep the following tips in mind to avoid falling victim to a scam:

    • Ask for names of previous customers and verify that they were satisfied with the work.
    • Research the company through the Better Business Bureau in Alberta, the Consumer Investigations Unit, your local Rural Crime Watch, or on social media.
    • Obtain a written quote that includes the full business name, address, phone number, GST number, as well as provincial and municipal license numbers, if applicable.
    • Quotes should specify the quantity and quality of materials being offered. Be skeptical if contractors decline to provide this information.
    • Seek estimates from reputable companies to compare costs.
    • Do not agree to a contract if you feel pressured or if the contractor refuses to take "no" for an answer.
    • Be leery of unsolicited offers. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

    The Alberta RCMP is working together with the Alberta Consumer Investigation Unit (CIU) to counter this trend. For more information, see the Service Alberta's Dealing with Door-to-Door Sales tip sheet. If you, or anyone you know, suspect a paving-contractor scam, please report it to your local RCMP detachment:

    Parkland - 825-220-7267 - Non-emergency

    Drayton valley - 780-542-4456 - Non-emergency

    Evansburg - 780-727-4446 - Non-emergency

    Parkland County, Alta. – On March 5, 2024 at approximately 2:30am, Parkland RCMP were conducting patrols near Alberta Beach and Range Road 32 when they located an older model Volvo car that had been previously stolen out of Beaumont. When the Parkland RCMP attempted a traffic stop, the stolen Volvo fled to evade police. The police did not initiate a pursuit, however, a short time later, the police were able to follow the vehicle tracks in the fresh snow that led them to a property in a subdivision, near Alberta Beach. Parkland RCMP located the stolen Volvo at this property and the lone driver fled on foot from police. Again, the fresh snow assisted the police in locating the suspect hiding in the bushes. This suspect is known to police and was arrested without incident.

    Samantha Alley of no fixed address was charged with:

    • Possession of stolen property under $5000
    • Flight from police officer
    • Possession of break-in instruments
    • Possession of a prohibited weapon
    • Fail to comply with a release order
    • Drive while unauthorized

    The accused was brought before a Justice of the Peace and released from custody on a Release Order. Her next Court appearance is April 24, 2024, at the Alberta Court of Justice in Stony Plain, AB.

    If you have any information about this or any other crime, please call the Parkland RCMP at 825-220-7267. If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the "P3 Tips" app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.

    During the month of February 2024, Parkland County Enforcement Services (PCES) conducted an increased number of targeted patrols in Wabamun and surrounding areas. Based on information from both the RCMP and the general public, these patrols were coordinated to occur at specific times and locations in the Wabamun area.

    PCES planned a number of traffic enforcement operations intended to deter, disrupt and displace crime in the area. These operations target traffic offences statistically related to crime, increasing the likelihood Officers have of encountering criminal entities and activities as well as deterring and displacing any would be criminals.

    PCES also planned and conducted several Joint Force Operations with Parkland RCMP in the Wabamun area. These patrols were conducted at specific times identified by the RCMP as peak property crime times.

    As a result of these operations, several arrests were made for individuals with outstanding warrants and/or breaching conditions. Several drivers were issued summons for offences statistically related to crime, including: driver while unauthorized/suspended, operating an unregistered motor vehicle and operating an uninsured motor vehicle. Uninsured vehicles were towed and impounded.
