Downtown Branch strives to be an integral part of the communities in central Edmonton. It embraces the EPS mission statement, “To increase public safety through excellence in the prevention, intervention and suppression of crime and disorder.”
Downtown Branch will achieve this goal by reducing fear of crime and victimization, creating safer public spaces and demonstrating strong moral judgment and empathy and as a policing agency will make Edmonton one of Canada’s safest cities. To that end, the Edmonton Police Service is committed to improving the quality of life in its communities through ethical, proactive policing to the highest achievable standards.
Officers patrol in vehicles on bicycles and on foot depending on the unit they work in as a patrol officer, beat officer or community liaison officer. They respond to calls, conduct pro-active work and work in conjunction with specialized units and external partners.
The approximate boundaries of Downtown Branch are as follows:
To the South: the North Saskatchewan River
To the East: Kinnaird Ravine and small section of Virginia Park
To the North: 111 Ave
To the West: 124 St to 104 Ave, then 121 St between 104 Ave and 111 Ave.
