Collision Reporting

Do you need police at the scene of a motor vehicle collision?

If there is a serious injury or fatality, or if drugs or alcohol are involved, call 911. If any involved vehicle is not drivable or if any driver fails to produce registration or insurance, call the RCMP complaint line 780-992-6100. If the vehicles are drivable and the above factors don't apply, you don't need police at the scene.

Do you need to report a collision to police after the fact?

You must make a police report after the collision if there is any injury, even a minor one, or if there appears to be $2,000 or more in damage (if you aren't sure, get an estimate first).

Exchange information with the other driver:

You need to exchange registration, insurance and drivers' license information with the other driver(s). If you have a cell phone, it's easiest to take photographs of that information. Make sure to also take pictures of the damage to all involved vehicles and the collision location noting direction of travel.

Reporting a Hit and Run

If you are the victim of a hit and run, report it to the police. If you have already moved your vehicle, please attend the detachment to report the hit and run. If you see the other vehicle, record its make, model, and license plate number – partial license plates may be useful.

Crime Mapping

The City of Fort Saskatchewan is committed to neighbourhood development, including innovative and responsive community policing, which is why the Community Crime Map was developed.

Knowing the real picture of neighbourhood crime reported to the RCMP is the first step in doing something about it. Neighbourhood crime is more than just numbers; it's about knowing where crime is happening.

False Alarms

A police false alarm means the activation of an alarm system, via an alarm signal, that results in the dispatch of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) where unauthorized entry, attempted unauthorized entry or a police emergency does not exist. False alarms can happen at both commercial and residential premises. To help reduce the incidence of police false alarms, the City of Fort Saskatchewan adopted an Alarm System Bylaw.

Refer to Part 4 of the Alarm System Bylaw for a listing of Enforcement Penalties.

How to avoid police false alarms

  • Contact your alarm company with instructions to contact you or another person, via cell phone, before having permission to contact the RCMP.
  • Ensure your contact information is up to date with your alarm company.
  • Have your alarm system serviced regularly.
  • Discuss with the alarm company what circumstances will determine whether the RCMP are dispatched (i.e. 2 separate alarm triggers, only multi-zone triggers, glass break, etc.)
  • Ensure all people who have access to your home or business are aware of the alarm protocols.
  • Drafts may cause curtains, plants or decorations to set off motion detectors.
  • Motion detectors can be very sensitive to false alarms. Ensure animals and other objects moved easily by airflow are secured.
