Bringing together Alberta's Most Sophisticated Law Enforcement Resources
ALERT (Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams) exists to build safer communities. Made up of 400 police and civilian staff, we operate in eight communities across the province. We collaborate with individual police agencies to create a more strategic, intelligent response when it comes to serious and organized crime.

Our teams work across the province with municipal, provincial, federal and international partners through our integrated model to investigate and dismantle organized and complex crime that affect communities big and small over Alberta. We are a not-for-profit corporation funded by the Government of Alberta. Unlike jurisdiction-limited police forces, our integrated model compiles sworn officers, civilian staff and investigative resources from several of Alberta’s municipal police forces, provincial RCMP, and federal RCMP. These resources are brought together under the ALERT umbrella, and distributed across 8 regional hubs – our teams can effectively work on the province’s most challenging criminal activity without being set back by the typical jurisdictional constraints an agency would face investigating complex organized crime.
