The Edmonton Police Service’s Know Your Rights campaign is an initiative intended to inform individuals and community organizations of the respective rights and responsibilities of individuals and Edmonton police officers.
Created by the EPS’ Equity, Inclusion and Human Rights Branch, this education campaign, which began development prior to and is in compliance with the proposed provincial requirements, works to provide clarity surrounding an individual’s rights while also helping them understand the role of policing in Edmonton.
Through this initiative the EPS is hoping to create transparency, encourage respectful and open dialogue between EPS officers and members of the public and build relationships with individuals who may perceive barriers when interacting with police.
Brochure + Card
The Service has created a Know Your Rights pocket brochure with a removable wallet-sized card that can be carried by an individual and referred to when they are interacting with an Edmonton police officer.
The goal of the brochure is to increase an individual’s knowledge of their rights and provide insight on some of the roles and responsibilities of an EPS officer.
Physical copies of the pocket brochure and wallet card are available at all six EPS Divisions. Print-friendly versions of the brochure and wallet card are available to download, below.
Pocket Brochure Translations
At this time, the Know Your Rights brochure is being made available for download in several different languages. As each version is completed, the pocket brochure document will be uploaded to the corresponding language, below.
For members of the public that are interested in sharing Know Your Rights educational campaign visuals in their spaces, the Service has created three different sizes of Know Your Rights posters that have been made available for you to download and print.
