  • Strathcona County Enforcement Services nab speeders on Highway 216

     Strathcona County, Alberta – During the past few weeks Strathcona County RCMP and Enforcement Services have received several complaints regarding speeding on Highway 216. As a result, officers dedicated six hours of enforcement to this location amongst other locations in the County over the past weekend.

    During this period of time, our officers detected over 70 vehicles exceeding the posted speed limits with some startling speeds;

    -Two vehicles were exceeding 190km/h

    -Two vehicles traveling at speeds of 170km/h to 175km/h

    -One vehicle traveling at a speed of 152km/h

    -Three vehicles traveling at speeds of 140km/h to 150km/h. 

    The speed limit on Highway 216 is 100km/h.

    Additionally, on the afternoon of Saturday April 14, 2018, a Jeep Wrangler was caught on 17 Street, south of Baseline Road traveling at a speed of 117km/h.  The speed limit on 17 Street is 60km/h.

    A collision at any of these speeds would spell instant death as vehicles and human bodies are not built for this kind of velocity.  At those speeds, a driver is not only risking his or her life, they are also placing everyone around them in jeopardy.  If convicted, a driver exceeding the speed limit by 50km/h or more may face a fine of $2,300.00 and could have their licence suspended for a period of up to 6 months.  Police urge motorist to drive responsibly and make the personal decision to follow the rules of the road.  Don’t wait on a collision or a ticket to change your driving behavior, make the commitment now.

    “Unsafe speed is a long-standing issue and continues to be a leading cause in car collisions,” says Cpl. Shayne Gudmundson of the Strathcona County RCMP. “Speed limits exist for public safety reasons, and we are committed to targeting those who place the public in danger.”

  • Lock Down at St. Matthew Catholic School

    Rocky Mountain House, Alberta – On 2018-04-18 at 14:08 pm, Rocky Mountain House RCMP were dispatched to a call of an unknown teenaged male carrying a long barrel firearm near St. Matthew Catholic School who then appeared to have entered the school. The school was contacted by police and were placed on lock down. RCMP members attended immediately and cleared the school, determining the school and occupants were safe and unharmed.

    RCMP completed extensive patrols of the area, completed neighbourhood enquires and exhausted all avenues of investigation. Through corroboration between the RCMP and the staff of St. Matthew School the school was deemed safe and the lock down at the school was lifted. The RCMP do not believe the safety of the school or surrounding community is at any risk.

    If any additional information is known by the public regarding this event please contact the Rocky Mountain House RCMP detachment at (403)845-2882. The RCMP encourage the public to continue to report suspicious behaviour in their community to the RCMP or Crime stoppers.
