Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods (SCAN) is a unit of the Alberta Sheriffs that helps keep communities safe by dealing with problem properties that are being used for specific illegal activity, such as drug trafficking, prostitution, child exploitation and gang-related crime. The complaint has to come from a member of the community and not the police.
