RESOURCES
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.
