What Went on Last Week 

Fraud Warning

It has come to the attention of Foothills County RCMP that there is fraudulent activity which involves the fraudster, who has done extensive research into an organization, pretending to be a member of that organization using their email address. The fraudster then emails the treasurer or another member who has access to their finances saying they need to urgently pay a client and requests an e-transfer be sent. The financial member then sends the e-transfer and later realizes it was a scam.

Please verify any requests for an e-transfer request from anyone by email and keep your organization safe.


In Alberta a collision is reportable to police when one or more of the following:
1. Damage exceeds $2000.00. If it is two vehicle, this would be a combined total.
2. There are injuries.
3. It is a hit and run.

If you are involved in a reportable collision, always remember:
1. Note the exact location of the collision.
     a. Landmarks, street names, cross streets, blue sign information.
2. Note the time of the collision.
3. If a two vehicle collision:
     a. Take a photo of the other driver’s license plate, driver license, insurance and registration
     b. Take a photo of all damages, your vehicle and the other vehicle.

When you attend the detachment to make your statement you will need to bring:

1. Driver license, insurance (make sure it is valid) and registration.
2. Photos of the damage.
3. Have available to you all of your passenger information
     a. Seating location
     b. Full name and birthdate
     c. Address
     d. Telephone

You will then be asked to fill out a statement form, which will take less than 15 minutes.

Once the collision is reported and the statement made you will be issued a damage sticker and provided with a file number. Law for autobody shops to do any repair work exceeding $2000 requires this. Do not lose the sticker as only one is issued.

If you have any questions concerning collisions, please call the detachment in Turner Valley 403.933.6600 and the staff will be able to answer any concerns or questions.
