ALERT was established by the Alberta government in 2006 to bring together the province’s most sophisticated law enforcement resources to combat organized and serious crime. Nearly 300 municipal police and RCMP work together to investigate everything from drug trafficking to child exploitation to gang violence. The strength of the ALERT model lies in the integration of members from various agencies who have expertise in intelligence, enforcement, and support services. ALERT is the overarching umbrella organization of integrated, provincially focused law enforcement activities that promote safe and secure communities in Alberta.
Members of the public who suspect drug or gang activity in their community can call local police, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
Crime Stoppers is always anonymous.
ALERT was established and is funded by the Alberta Government and is a compilation of the province’s most sophisticated law enforcement resources committed to tackling serious and organized crime.
