Policing Mandate

The function of the EPS is to provide protection of life and property, preservation of public peace, prevention and detection of crime, regulation of non-criminal conduct as required by law, and perform services incumbent upon police as a social and community agency.

This is achieved through a Community Policing service delivery model. Community Policing is the delivery of effective and efficient policing services through a collaborative partnership with the citizens of Edmonton.

It is characterized by an appropriate balance of:

  • Prevention;
  • Intervention;
  • Suppression;
  • Problem solving;
  • Consultations and partnerships.
