High River RCMP investigate police impersonators

High River, Alta. – The High River RCMP are investigating a report of two individuals impersonating police officers on April 20, 2019. Public assistance is being sought in identifying the suspects responsible.

At approximately 5:00 p.m. a male victim was driving on 498 Avenue near highway 2A, when a dark grey Ford SUV (possibly Explorer) activated what appeared to be police lights, causing the victim to pull over. The victim assumed the two occupants of the vehicle were police officers.

Two males approached the victim and asked for licence and registration. The suspects told the victim they needed to search the vehicle and asked the victim to step outside. The suspects took an undisclosed amount of cash from the victim’s vehicle and drove away.

Suspect #1 is described as tall, muscular, clean cut hair and wearing sunglasses, blue pants and a grey shirt.

Suspect #2 is described as medium build, average height and was a wearing RCMP baseball cap.

Both suspects spoke with heavy accents and may have been of Romanian descent.

High River RCMP encourage any members of the public who have information in relation to this incident or any other crimes to contact the High River RCMP Detachment at 403-652-2357 or your local police.

Environmental Master Plan steers Red Deer’s sustainable future



From The City of Red Deer

City Council adopted an updated version of the Environmental Master Plan, a document which will guide Red Deer’s environmental strategy now and into the future.

The Environmental Master Plan (EMP) was originally released in 2011 and serves as a guide to improve environmental sustainability in Red Deer by setting goals and providing short-, medium- and long-term strategies. The EMP is designed to provide The City and the people of Red Deer with a road map to improved environmental performance. The updated plan outlines clear goals and measurable targets, as well as suggested actions for The City to undertake during implementation.

“The EMP refresh is a higher-level document that was designed to provide a foundation for strategic decision making in the future. We focused on six areas: air, ecology, energy, waste, water and community design, which combined transportation and built environment from the previous plan,” said Nancy Hackett, Environmental Initiatives Supervisor, “Each of the sixareas have specific targets and metrics, but we refined the plan to 20 actions that providebroader direction.”

A variety of public engagement sessions provided key community insight that was used to assess current conditions and determine future focuses and goals for the plan. In addition to sessions with targeted community groups, a Community Engagement Group took part in monthly, in-depth sessions to discuss Red Deer’s focus areas, targets and actions for the future.

Now that the plan has been adopted, City Staff will begin implementation to ensure Red Deercontinues on its’ path of reducing its environmental footprint.
