Neighbourhood Empowerment Team

The Neighbourhood Empowerment Team is a partnership between the City of Edmonton, the Edmonton Police Service, The Family Centre and United Way of the Alberta Capital Region.  There are six teams which are geographically based out of Edmonton Police divisions. The main focus of the work is to identify recurring situations which affect the perceptions or realities of a community’s safety and which would benefit from proactive and preventative interventions. We coordinate and mobilize relevant resources and work with the community to address factors which may be contributing to the situation. We are keenly interested in working collaboratively with stakeholders and community members to ensure we connect the appropriate services to each issue, customizing the approach.

Please feel free to contact Connie Marciniuk at connie.marciniuk@edmonton.ca or 780-975-3921 if you have any community crime or safety concerns you would like to discuss.
