Neighbourhood Empowerment Team (NET) works with residents, community, businesses and organizations to build solutions to create safe and vibrant neighbourhoods and communities.
NET responds to and resolves repeated or significant incidents that may impact the security and safety of Edmontonians across the city.
NET achieves this by working with community to address the factors that contribute to the issue, along with reducing the fear of crime and social disorder by using problem solving approaches.
The main focus of NET’s 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.
The goal is to then identify and implement innovative strategies and work with community to address factors which are contributing to the situation, ultimately working toward a resolution of the incidents which are creating or contributing to the issue.
This resource provides a series of tips to help property owners, business owners and employees reduce crime and disorder at your place of work.
The City developed a neighbourhood response tool that helps you make the right call at the right time. It covers a range of situations from witnessing vandalism, intoxication and substance abuse to property and business concerns and provides tangible steps to increase safety and minimize risk.
