  • Red Deer, Alberta – Recent arrests by Red Deer RCMP include locating and arresting a number of suspects in stolen vehicles, many of whom attempted to flee police before being arrested. A number of those arrests occurred as RCMP monitored areas and prolific property offenders identified through the Red Deer RCMP’s Pinpoint policing strategies. Other arrests were thanks to citizens reporting suspicious activity.

    October 11

    Shortly before 5:30 am on October 11, RCMP located a suspect walking in the Johnstone neighbourhood who fled when he saw police. Police located him shortly afterward and confirmed that he was wanted on 10 outstanding warrants out of Red Deer and Edmonton. A new court date has not yet been set for 30 year old Jeremy Sanderson-Hayward regarding those outstanding warrants.

    October 10

    At 5:30 pm on October 10, RCMP worked with Lacombe Police Service in locating two men driving a stolen SUV in south Red Deer. When the vehicle refused to stop for RCMP, more police officers laid a tire deflation device, which punctured several tires. The SUV continued south onto Spruce Drive, where the occupants abandoned it and attempted to flee police on foot. Both suspects were arrested in the Mountview neighbourhood. One suspect assaulted a police officer in his attempt to escape custody, used stolen identification in an attempt to conceal his identity from police, and was found to be in possession of a small amount of what appeared to be crystal meth. The police officer was not injured during the arrest. The SUV had been reported stolen out of Red Deer on October 9.

     A 32 year old man and a 39 year old man face charges; their names cannot be released at this time as those charges have not yet been sworn before the courts.

    Shortly before 5:30 pm on October 9, RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle driving in an industrial area in north Red Deer. Police located the truck and confirmed that it was stolen; the blue Ford F250 truck refused to stop for police, who did not pursue due to public safety concerns. The truck was observed speeding, driving over a median and through a ditch as it fled police. RCMP located the truck abandoned in the GH Dawe Centre parking lot and arrested the suspect after he fled on foot and attempted to hide in an alley at Hamilton Drive. At the time of his arrest, the suspect was found to be in possession of a small amount of what is believed to be ecstasy. The truck had been reported stolen out of Airdrie on October 8.

    34 year old Shane William Brown was wanted on three outstanding warrants at the time of his arrest. In addition to those charges, he now faces the following charges:

    Central AB Child Advocacy Centre one step closer to reality

  • Red Deer, Alberta, June 15, 2018: The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is thrilled to announce that the next phase in planning for its new Centre of Excellence on Red Deer College’s main campus is now underway.

    On Thursday, June 14, RDC’s Board of Governors approved a resolution to move forward to request Government of Alberta approval through an Order in Council to lease a portion of land on the RDC campus to the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre. This request builds on the memorandum of understanding that CACAC and RDC entered into earlier this year, and it represents the partners’ commitment to work together to explore options that will meet the needs of Central Albertans.

    Mark Jones, Chief Executive Officer of the CACAC, together with the centre’s staff and service partners, couldn’t be more pleased with this announcement. “Supporters of the centre have worked tirelessly since the formation of the coalition group who were determined to help with the desperate need for child advocacy in Central Alberta. We are collectively changing the way Central Alberta responds to child abuse. We opened in our temporary facility November 2017, and the statistics have been staggering of how many cases have been processed. The need for our planned Centre of Excellence is proven, and we are going to be working hard to raise the funds to bring it to fruition. These children need us, the community needs us, and the future of our society depends on it.”

    The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is a not for profit organization, governed by a board of directors that works in an integrative partnership with the Central Region Child and Family Services, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Justice, Alberta Education, the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre, and the RCMP to better service children, youth and families impacted by sexual abuse and the most serious/complex cases of physical abuse and neglect.

    The centre has professionals onsite dealing with the criminal, child protection, medical and psychological needs of child victims and their families. Onsite professionals include police officers, physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and crown prosecutors with the common goals of: improved timeliness in the coordinated assessment and investigation of child abuse cases; increased access to support and therapeutic resources for the child and their family; enhanced collaboration among partners; more efficient and effective use of resources; increased knowledge and awareness of child abuse in the community.

    Working collaboratively, we achieve greater results than any partner could on their own. It blends investigation, treatment, prevention, education and research with expertise to provide an integrated practice approach: wrapping around children and always “working in the best interests of the child”.

  • Banff Detachment RCMP members suffer assaults while responding to disturbance

    Banff, Alberta – On June 8, three RCMP officers suffered injuries while trying to effect the arrest of a 34-year-old Banff resident.  The officers are recovering and the male is facing charges.

    At 5:38 p.m., the RCMP responded to a call for assistance at an apartment residence where a male was believed to be very intoxicated, combative and residents were requesting his removal.  While trying to effect the arrest of this male, he assaulted the three responding members.  The male jumped off a balcony, fled a short distance and was apprehended promptly after two more RCMP members arrived to assist. EMS provided assistance on scene as well.

    The male was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released.  The initial responding RCMP members also went to the hospital where all have been released. One member remains off duty while the other two have returned to duty.

    A judicial interim release hearing was held.  Robin Jeremy Tatham was released on a Recognizance and is scheduled to appear in court on June 20 in Canmore.  He is charged with six criminal code charges; disarming a police officer, assault police officer with a weapon (x2) and assault a police officer (x3).

    “The efforts put forth by the attending officers to maintain control of this situation in the face of their injuries is to be commended” says Staff Sergeant Michael Buxton-Carr, Banff Detachment Commander.  “An incident like this demonstrates the risks we face and overcome on a daily basis.”
