The Edmonton Police Force serves our city with car patrols, foot patrols, police sub-stations located in communities, emergency response teams, and a police helicopter.
The police aim to involve people in the community in creating a safer society. To better serve all Edmontonians, a real effort is made to recruit individuals from different cultural, ethnic, and language groups. As a householder, you might wish to participate in a volunteer-run Neighbourhood Watch program that trains people in crime prevention.
The Edmonton Police Service website provides information about policing, crime rates, community outreach programs, emergency preparedness, and crime prevention.
For Emergency Services, Call 911
The City of Edmonton also operates the Edmonton Fire Department and Emergency Medical Response (ambulance). In an emergency, you can simply dial 911 for these services and/or the police.
