Non Emergency – Crisis Diversion Team (REACH Edmonton)

DIAL 211- Press 3

The 24/7 Crisis Diversion Team helps people experiencing nonemergency crisis get to a safe place, freeing up police and emergency medical services to respond to more critical events. 24/7 Crisis Diversion program contributes to the decriminalization of poverty, mental health and addiction by supporting people to connect with appropriate resources versus engagement with police, justice and corrections. Assisting individuals who are:

  • likely to come to harm without some intervention
  • experiencing a mental health or non-emergency medical crisis
  • and / or intoxicated or otherwise impaired

“Crisis Diversion reduces stigma by shifting the conversation about social issues so that the safety of marginalized people is paramount. Instead of public intoxication being a moral failure, for instance, or mental health symptoms being something frightening, they are now regarded as expressions of vulnerability. Crucially, with “Just Call 211” the community feels empowered to respond.” – Jared Tkachuk, Manager 24/7 Outreach & Support Services

Service offers:

a 24-hour mobile assistance program for vulnerable individuals who need immediate assistance


assistance in crisis situations to minimize negative outcomes

supportive transportation for those facing multiple barriers

assertive support and referrals through warm handoffs to social service agencies

Aimed at reducing inappropriate referrals to emergency and police services.

Affiliation: Partnered with Boyle Street Community Services, Canadian Mental Health Association – Edmonton Region, 211, and Hope Mission. Key Provider: outreach workers

Crime Mapping

The Edmonton Police Service has developed a crime mapping application for the public to view reports of crime in neighbourhoods across the city.


ACCPA – Albertans Making Communities Safer Together

Alberta Community Crime Prevention Association was established in 1989 as the Alberta Community Police Advisory Committee by provincial Police Services as a means to discuss mutual crime related issues within communities/police/government.

In 1990 it became the Alberta Community Crime Prevention Association (ACCPA).

ALERT – Albert Law Enforcement Team SCAN

SCAN promotes safe communities by targeting and shutting down properties that are regularly used for illegal activities related to drugs, gangs, prostitution, and child exploitation.

The process starts when one or more residents of a neighbourhood file a complaint with SCAN. Complaints are confidential and the complainant’s identity will not be revealed at any time.

Before taking legal action, SCAN investigators will meet with a property owner or send a warning letter to try and solve the problem informally. If informal efforts are unsuccessful, SCAN may apply to the courts for a Community Safety Order, which calls for owners to meet a number of conditions or for the property to be closed for up to 90 days.
