The Drumheller Community Policing Committee wants your input.
 
They're asking people to fill out an online policing priorities survey.
 
"A few years ago, the priorities for policing in our community came out of K Division (Edmonton) and Ottawa; communities in Alberta had no real say into where they wanted to see the police they pay for," explained committee chair Fred Makowecki. "Now, we're part of the annual performance plan and we go to the community to solicit input on what the community thinks priorities are in policing."
 
"I look at other communities that don't have input like our community and don't participate, how sad that they're not taking advantage of the opportunity to make your community what you want it to be," he added.
 
Members of the Community Policing Committee, Citizens on Patrol and Citizens Action Committee have been handing out hard copies of the survey, but Makowecki said most people have been filling it out online.
 
"It's up all year round, but we especially look for a surge in input for the month of February, being that in March we actually take the statistics and go tot he RCMP and say this is what the community has said are the priorities so let's figure out how to work this into the plan for next year."
