Red Deerians can take a crime survey and share ideas on improving public safety

It’s open on the city’s website until Dec. 31

The City of Red Deer is inviting citizens to take part in an online survey and share ideas on improving public safety and reducing crime.

The city hosted six in-person public meetings on community safety. About 200 people attended and shared their concerns last month.

The five top issues identified were: property crime, justice and enforcement, addictions and substance abuse, personal and community safety, and economic/business impact.

These are included in the online survey, and participants will be asked to identify what more can be done to tackle these issues.

Red Deer is struggling with the drug, health and economic challenges that are affecting cities across the country.

“Crime and community safety is our No. 1 priority and we (want to) hear from as many people as possible,” said city manager Allan Seabrooke.

To participate in the survey, visit www.reddeer.ca/bettertogether before Dec. 31.
