Maple Ridge, B.C. – Ridge Meadows RCMP are excited to share with the community a new and innovative data sharing platform.



In 2020, as part of the Ridge Meadows RCMP strategic planning process, public input and stakeholder feedback identified a desire for better access to crime stats and data. Today, the Ridge Meadows RCMP is excited to launch their new Community Safety Dashboard, the first of its kind for any RCMP detachment across the country.

"Traditionally it can be challenging to share police information due to privacy act considerations and the importance of preserving police operational tactics however, we were determined to deliver a model of data sharing which can provide more transparency and accountability," states Constable Julie Klaussner. "We think our citizens are going to be impressed with not only the depth of information we are able to provide but how that information can be broken down further into individual neighbourhoods."

Citizens are encouraged to explore the Dashboard by going to the Community Safety Dashboard link here.
