Residents of Langham will vote on whether to utilize the services of an expanded Dalmeny Police Service later this month.
A plebiscite on the question of creating a single regional police service for both Dalmeny and Langham is slated to be on the ballot when Langham residents vote in a council byelection on Wednesday, September 20.
Currently, the town of Langham has a protective services contract with the Warman-Martensville RCMP detachment. The town of Dalmeny maintains its own municipal police service.
Langham Chief Administrative Officer Jamie Paik said town council first brought up the suggestion of contracting with the Dalmeny Police Service last winter.
“The idea of sharing a police force had been a topic of conversation among some residents in town,” said Paik in an interview on Wednesday, August 30. “There has been some talk among residents that they would like to see more of a police presence in town.” Continue reading “Langham residents ponder using Dalmeny Police Service”→

On Wednesday July 26th 2017, at approximately 2:00 am the Warman/Martensville RCMP received a call from a vigilant citizen in Warman reporting three males looking into and entering unlocked vehicles. Officers responded and were able to locate and arrest three youth in relation to the matter. The youth were found to have entered and stolen from numerous unlocked vehicles in the City. The matter continues to be under investigation.
The Warman/Martensville RCMP would like to thank members of the public for making the observation and promptly calling it in.
The RCMP would also like to remind the public of the following, which are common themes when it comes to break-ins to vehicles and theft of vehicles. In the case of vehicle thefts, they are almost always left unlocked, with the keys accessible somewhere in the vehicle. Prevention of these types of crimes is simple:
Lock your doors
Remove your keys
Remove valuables from your vehicles and don’t have them visible
Park your car in a well-lit area
Call the police immediately if you see suspicious activity
