This is Who We Are - STAT

26-Jun-2018

Specialized Traffic Apprehension Team (STAT) began in 2012 as part of the Edmonton Police Service’s Violence Reduction Strategy.

The goal of STAT is to reduce violence through traffic enforcement-based criminal interdiction activities. A STAT team will stop vehicles for traffic violations such as speeding, distracted driving, or impaired driving but will look for and act on any other criminal activity to keep our streets safe.

In 2017 alone, STAT laid over 2000 criminal charges, seized 3877 grams of marijuana, 5902 grams of cocaine, 745 grams of methamphetamine, 4638 fentanyl tablets and various other drugs. They also seized 12 firearms and recovered 105 stolen vehicles.
