A parking spot exclusively for the RCMP outside Airdrie's Walmart might suggest that the store had an ongoing problem with theft, but that's not the case according to local Constable Meagan Fillion. She says it's more of a safety precaution.

Fillion says in a dire emergency, RCMP will still pull right up to the curb. Trent, who manages Walmart, is happy to lend the parking spot to our local police who, he says, have an awful job sometimes.
