Alberta RCMP introduced their new developed Crime Prevention Calendar Tuesday, which will be used for education and public outreach across Alberta.

Like the province’s Traffic Safety Calendar, the Crime Prevention Calendar will provide monthly themes throughout the year.

The RCMP say a combination of statistics, seasonality and public perception of issues were used to choose the monthly themes.

June’s theme is the safe storage of off-highway vehicles tips to protect them.
