Sask Rural Crime Watch Association formed to battle crime


Rural and Urban municipalities in Saskatchewan have joined forces to launch the Saskatchewan Rural Crime Watch Association.

SARM says the non-profit group includes SARM, SUMA, rural crime watch members, the RCMP, ministry of Corrections and policing.

It is a community led and police supported program to reduce criminal behavior.

SARM president Ray Orb says volunteers become the eyes and ears for local police and rural crime watch has proven successful.

He says areas with organized crime watch programs tend to have a significant reduction in criminal activity, including less theft, vandalism, garbage dumping, break-ins and cattle rustling.
