Combined Forces Special Enforcement Units (CFSEU)
ALERT’s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Units (CFSEU) are based in seven cities around the province:
- Fort McMurray
- Grande Prairie
- Medicine Hat
- Red Deer
But the scope of their investigations into organized and serious crime extends far beyond the limits of those cities; they aim to disrupt and dismantle organized crime in both rural and urban areas across the province.
These highly skilled investigators often conduct long-term, in-depth operations that have a significant impact on reducing crime in our communities. To achieve their goals, CFSEU teams utilize a number of specialized law enforcement techniques.
With the help of local police departments, RCMP detachments, and other partner agencies operating at municipal, provincial and federal levels, ALERT’s CFSEU teams tackle such criminal problems as:
- Drug trafficking
- Street gang activity
- Outlaw motorcycle group (OMG) activity
- Firearms trafficking
- Financial crimes (fraud, counterfeiting, money laundering)
- Organized vehicle theft and re-VINning
