There is more traffic on Edmonton streets now than ever before. Not surprisingly, most Edmontonians rank traffic safety as a top priority. The Edmonton Police Service acknowledges this and through enforcement, education, and partnering with other important road safety partners, EPS strives to improve the safety of our streets for everyone.
Whether it is our members responding to a neighbourhood complaint of speeding, members conducting Check Stop operations, Distracted Driving blitzes, or regular traffic enforcement, EPS members do what they can to work with the community.
The EPS also provides education and programs to protect citizens and their vehicles or vehicle contents from being the target of theft. For most of us, our vehicles are the second largest purchase we make and protecting them is critical.
And if you unfortunately have to retrieve your vehicle from our impound lot, our Police Seized Vehicle Unit is responsible for the safe storage, release, and disposal of over 20,000 vehicles a year. They also partner to hold monthly vehicle auctions.
