Crime Prevention

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.
