Input sought for policing priorities

    The Drumheller and Area Policing Committee is looking for feedback from the community on policing priorities in the coming year and is hosting an open house this Thursday looking for input.
     The committee helps to set the agenda for policing priories in the area. They have scheduled an open house on November 24, at 7 p.m. at the Civic Centre.
    “This meeting will be a forum for citizens of Drumheller and area to ask questions of the Police Committee and the RCMP, to lend ideas for better policing or any other discussion as it pertains to policing here locally,” said Fred Makowecki, chair of the committee. “Our goal is to garner local input that will then be used to compile the yearly plan for policing in our community.”
    He said the open house is an opportunity for any resident to get involved in the actual process of priority planning.
    Residents can also take the time to go on line to and complete a short  survey on what they feel should be the focus of law enforcement.
    Makowecki said this is a valuable tool for the policing committee that will be used along with other community input to prioritize policing in our community. Printed versions will be available at the open house and are also available at Town Hall.
