Enforcement Services Investigations Process
To start an investigation, a formal complaint must be filed by calling Enforcement Services a 1-780-980-1537 (1LES) . A proper investigation and follow-up will begin when you provide your name, address, contact information, as well as the needed information for the concern you have.
- Date/time/duration of the event
- What the event/concern is
- Location of the event/concern
- Specific information such as the description of the vehicle and a license plate, description of the animal (breed, colour), type of noise, etc.
At times, the investigating officer will need you to produce a signed statement and may need you to attend court. If this is the case, the officer will inform you and explain the process. Your personal information is essential to investigations and is kept in the strictest confidence. The Freedom of Information and Privacy Act (FOIP) governs the collecting and dissemination of all personal information. If you are required to be a witness in a court proceeding, your legal name may be released to the defendant.
