Speak Out

In 2012, the Edmonton Police Service launched “Speak Out”, a public awareness campaign that urges the public to get involved and report incidents of domestic violence.

"We require the support of our community partnerships, stakeholders, and the collective and committed efforts of everyone, to help eradicate domestic violence in our community and reduce and prevent re-victimization. Domestic violence is a community problem that requires a community solution. As citizens and human beings, we have a moral obligation to look out for each other. We must report these horrific crimes in order that police may investigate, arrest the offenders responsible and bring them before the courts to be held accountable for their actions.

No one should live in fear in their own home! The next time you witness abuse, or suspect a family member, friend or colleague is a victim of domestic violence, make that call to police…someone’s life depends on it.

What can you do? If you witness someone being abused or are the victim of domestic violence, call 9-1-1 for any crime in progress or for a life threatening emergency, and 780-423-4567 for non-emergency.

To talk confidentially with a social worker: 780-496-4777 City of Edmonton Assessment and Short-Term Counselling

For information on resources in Edmonton and across the province: 310-1818 (toll free) Family Violence Info Line. Help is available in 170 languages, 24/7. Call to find out what help is available in your community." Cst. Alana Savage, Southeast Division.
