The The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (R.C.M.P) has a municipal contract with the Town of Okotoks to provide local police service. R.C.M.P. are the federal police and are responsible for enforcement of all federal laws. In Alberta, the R.C.M.P serves as the provincial police force, as is the case in all provinces except Ontario and Quebec. In this role they enforce provincial statutes and the Criminal Code of Canada.

The Okotoks RCMP detachment also supports a range of community programs and services that enhance community safety. This includes an active Auxilliary; a Constable program with five Okotoks residents as volunteers; a Citizens On Patrol program (C.O.P.) with sixty Okotoks residents as volunteers; a Victim Services Unit with fifteen volunteers which is shared with two neighbouring detachments; a Drug and Alcohol Resistance Education program; a Block Parent Program and a Rural Crime Watch program.
