Superintendent Darren Derko, Inspector Darrin Balanik, and the officers and staff of Northeast Division are proud to deliver innovative, effective and efficient policing services throughout north Edmonton. We are focused on reducing violent and property crime, improving traffic safety and addressing issues of community disorder.
To prevent crime and disorder from occurring, or to respond effectively when it does, we work closely with representatives and volunteers from over 68 communities and eight industrial areas in northeast Edmonton. We are well connected with parole officers, adult and youth probation staff, and a number of social agencies. Over 100 active volunteers help from within our diverse communities by providing excellent support.
How are we doing?
Results from January 1 - June 2015 - Northeast Division:
- Despite a 5% increase in calls in 2013 and an increase in calls of 3.3% in 2014, overall crime (a combination of all 8-crime indicators) is down by -4.0 in Northeast Division.
- Violent crime decreased by -2% when compared to 2013.
- Property crime decreased by -5.1%
- Theft from automobiles and theft-of automobiles remains a city-wide concern. Northeast Division members continue to address these issues but we have experienced an increase in these crime types in 2015. Please lock you vehicle, and do not leave the keys in your vehicle.
Northeast Division’s first priority remains the reduction of violent crime. Officers will work to promote public safety through prevention, intervention and suppression of crime and disorder. Our vision is to make Edmonton the safest major city in Canada.
How do we operate?
The Northeast Division Station, located at 14203 – 50 Street NW, serves as the focal point for policing in north Edmonton. Our Neighbourhood Empowerment Team (NET) is focused on the Killarney community.
Northeast Division is divided into four districts. Each district has a dedicated team of officers, including a District Sergeants, Detectives, Patrol Constables regularly assigned to the district, a Community Liaison Constable, and Beat Constables.
District Sergeants partner with a Community Liaison Constables to serve as the primary contact for communities to address issues and concerns that do not require immediate police response. They generate and share intelligence about active criminals, crime, disorder and other community concerns. Community Liaison Constables attend or organize community meetings to share crime prevention strategies and to help plan or implement problem-solving strategies. Reducing repeat calls for service helps to reduce victimization.
Who do we serve?
Northeast Division provides policing services to residents who reside in an area extending west to east from 97 Street NW to 33 Street, and south to north from the River Valley to 259 Avenue.
While Northeast Division is well connected to our community, we are always looking to improve. You are an important part of our success.
