If you require the attendance of a police officer to your location, but this is NOT a crime in progress, call 780-423-4567 or #377 (from a mobile device) to reach the Police Complaint Line. The Police Evaluator who takes your call will assess the appropriate service for your needs. This will range from a police unit being dispatched to your location to advice being given on how to respond to a Police Station to file a report.

CRIME IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD 
• it is important to keep police informed of non-urgent and petty crimes in the neighbourhood as it assists the EPS in determining where and when additional police presence in needed; 
• many “crimes of opportunity” occur when residents leave garage and house doors open and/or unlocked; 
• leaving garage door openers in cars gives thieves access to garages and homes; 
• warnings from alarms systems should not be ignored, 
• mark your property so that it can be identiļ¬ed. Police often see items in pawn shops that they believe to be stolen. However, they are powerless to do anything as the items have no identifying markings.
