    The Drumheller Policing Committee is asking residents what they feel are priorities for enforcement in the coming year.
    The Policing Committee has released its annual survey. This survey is to collect opinions on policing in the Drumheller area and to assist in determining policing priorities for the coming year.
    “We are very proud of the citizen input that will be used to help formulate the three local priorities for policing in our community. This process is highly regarded for its participation by the public,” said councillor Fred Makowecki who is the Council representative on the Committee.
    The Policing Committee was established to act as a liaison between Town Council, the RCMP Detachment, Bylaw Enforcement, and the citizens of Drumheller and the rural areas served by the Drumheller Detachment of the RCMP. The committee aims to foster responsible community actions towards the creation of a safe, secure community.
    “This is a chance for every person in our policing area to participate in this important yearly task. Please let your voice count,” added Larry Coney, Chair of the Policing Committee.
