A newly-appointed government run crime committee met with community agencies on Monday to learn about some of their concerns.
The committee will visit rural and urban centres across the province to look at crime rates in Saskatchewan.
The group is headed by MLA Herb Cox, who says they will review areas like drugs, firearms, gangs and RCMP staffing levels.
“One of the asks from the rural side would have been, perhaps, more visibility of police services on RM roads,” said Cox.
The committee should have the report and its recommendations completed before the end of February — before the budget is tabled in March, 2017.
