Important Update for County of Grande Prairie residents

We’ve been adding up the RCMP reported crimes in the County for October and are already at 22 as of Oct 14. These are thefts of vehicles, break and enters, thefts over $5,000, and more!

Grande Prairie, inside the County borders, should also be a huge red flag.   They already have over 95 crimes in the City in October.  Their crime rate per 1,000 residents is much higher than the County's.  Sooner or later this hot spot will spill over into some County location.  It always does.

If criminals are committing this many crimes why aren’t County residents warning each other when they see something suspicious more often? 

We see the most proactive community create 29 times more warnings using Lightcatch than County of Grande Prairie residents. 

(The MD of Greenview, right next door, created 6.5 times more warning alerts per resident last month.)

If reporting of suspicious activity even doubled or tripled the rate it is now there would be less thefts, less damages and less criminals hanging around.

Here is a great example how residents in Parkland County did this.  In less than 45 minutes some well known copper thieves were identified, tracked, and pulled over.   There was zero risk to the public and this kind of crime wasn't seen in the area for several weeks afterwards.

Get your home security right

Having your home security capture suspicious activity 24 hours per day, 7 days per week is the best way to do this.

The right kind of home security that can do this isn't common. Most people don’t believe me when I say 90% of the security ideas people have in place, will lead to frustration when a crime actually occurs, but we see the evidence day in and day out.

When we do a review of how a crime happened the vast majority could also be prevented with the right home security.

After examining thousands of crimes, I found a very small group were getting 500% better results, using simple, low cost methods anyone can use.

Use this free quiz to see where there may be security blind spots at your home. You will also get a free report how to setup the right security using any vendors services.


We’ve made it a 5 second process to send information from your home security to Lightcatch when something happens.  When you add the right home security to Lightcatch you get a system that can quickly stop crime, before it even happens.
