The Edmonton Police Service is known for community policing and violence reduction. A major part of this is preventing problems before they occur. This strategy of prevention, intervention, and suppression guides the EPS in its day-to-day activities.
As a cornerstone, Crime Prevention empowers the community to ensure they take necessary precautions to prevent crimes occurring to them or to the ones they love.
The EPS provides information and programs about Home and Property Safety, Personal & Family Safety, Community Safety and Neighbourhood Empowerment Teams.
Every March, police service partners in Alberta take part in Fraud Prevention Month. This month is dedicated to the public education on current and trending scams and how citizens can spot the red flags of potential scams and protect themselves as much as possible from falling victim to these fraudsters. Scams are evolving and becoming more sophisticated; many are preying on our societal use of new technologies, so we must be aware of what scams are out there. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter accounts for daily tips throughout the month. You can also read more on specific scams by clicking here.
If you would like to report a fraud/scam attempt, please contact Service Alberta or the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
