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.



Crime Prevention Week

May 10 – 16, 2020

Alberta’s annual Crime Prevention Week is an opportunity for EPS and its partners to educate our communities on crime prevention and the tools that are available to help.

While EPS will not be able to host its usual crime prevention and personal safety events due to COVID-19, we will be posting tips on social media and hosting a special online question and answer session. 

Monday – Get to know the NET (Neighbourhood Empowerment Team) and how they can help with community safety issues.

Tuesday – Learn crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) and the simple things you can do around your property to keep it safe and secure.

Wednesday – Join us for the first-ever Coffee with a Cop on EPS Facebook Live, and get answers to your crime prevention questions while sharing a virtual morning coffee.

Thursday – Find out how EPS is engaging and supporting youth during the temporary school closure, and the many resources available to the community as well. 

Friday – Safeguard your vehicle or bicycle from thieves with a few easy steps.
