Community Safety

Community safety is about ensuring all Red Deerians can live, work and play in a safe, secure and healthy city. Unfortunately, crime and community safety concerns are on the rise in Red Deer, and although our numbers show a decrease in crime, citizens continue to experience things that are affecting where they go, what they do and how they feel about Red Deer and the safety of themselves and others who live here.
