Gather a couple of neighbors, pick a date, follow the instructions in the "HOW TO" guide and invite everyone to join in! Be sure to register the date of your Block Party with the Town office at 780-961-3773 to ensure availability of the Block Party Kit. Get ready to have some fun!

s Sturgeon Rural Crime Watch
The Morinville RCMP detachment has about 30 officers to look after Sturgeon County. They cover an area of 2,109 square kilometers with a population of over 34,000. They can't be everywhere at once. That's where the Sturgeon Rural Crime Watch Association (SRCWA) comes in.
Together, as SRCWA members, we are additional eyes and ears in the county and report suspicious activity to the RCMP. Now you probably do that anyway, but when you are member of the SRCWA there is a big difference. That communication becomes a two way street.
We are currently looking for a Director to represent the Town of Legal. If you are interested or are looking for more information, please contact SRCWA at 780-691-1551 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
