The Town of Didsbury values the safety and security of its residents and visitors. In addition to a 10 member RCMP detachment that serves the Didsbury and its surrounding region, Didsbury also employs two full-time Community Peace Officers.
If you require the assistance of a Peace Officer, please contact our Action Request line at 403.335.2030.

- Traffic Safety Act
- Liquor and Gaming and Cannabis Act
- Animal Protection Act
- Stray Animals Act
- Dangerous Dogs Act
- Trespass to Premises Act
- Petty Trespass Act
- Provincial Offences and Procedures Act

The Town of Didsbury is also part of a Regional Agreement that allows all Peace Officers within Mountain View County and the Towns and Villages within the County to enforce provincial legislation within the Town of Didsbury when they see an issue that needs to be addressed.
