Theft of auto is one of the most pervasive crimes in Edmonton. To address this growing problem the Edmonton Police Service has initiated the “Car Curfew” Program. The “Car Curfew Program” is a free, voluntary program which aims to prevent vehicle theft and aid patrol members in readily identifying a potentially stolen vehicle.
Registered owners may pick up “Car Curfew” program decals at their local police station and place them on the rear windshield of their vehicle. If a police officer witnesses the vehicle in operation between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m., they may stop the vehicle and verify that the vehicle is being operated with the consent of the owner.
- This program is designed to draw the attention of police officers to vehicles not normally operated between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. and may potentially be stolen.
- Police officers encountering a vehicle displaying a “Car Curfew Program” reflective decal (in the lower left side of the back windshield) operated during this time frame may stop that vehicle.
- Display of a “Car Curfew Program” decal does not impact the legal rights or duties of vehicle drivers or owners.
- If a vehicle has the “Car Curfew” decal and is stopped, police officers must be able to contact the registered owner if they are not driving the vehicle.
