The hamlet of Craigmyle gets together this Wednesday evening to discuss growing concerns over crime in the community about 40 kilometres north east of Drumheller.
 
Debbie Olmstead is one of those who asked for a public forum with residents, police and bylaw officers.
 
"We don't want (to be) pointing fingers at certain people or anything," she maintained. "Over the years it's started to build and Craigmyle's at a point in the last couple of years where it's starting to become an issue."
 
"We kind of formed a little organization with five members and we've asked a few specific questions that deal with Craigmyle, such as trespassing and bylaws in regards to dogs and such," she outlined. "We have questions for each group who is talking and then there will be a question and answer at the end of each presentation."
 
Invited speakers include the Hanna RCMP, Starland County Bylaw and the local Rural Crime Watch group.
 
They'll get together on Wednesday, October 11 at the Craigmyle Civic Centre starting at 7:00 p.m.
 
"The word is being spread pretty fast," stated Olmstead. "I hope we do actually have a full house and lots of questions, and I hope everyone goes away learning something, felling better and positive."
