RCMP educate regarding Clare’s Law

This past spring, St. Albert RCMP Domestic Violence Unit and St. Albert RCMP General Investigations Section participated in online training for the new Act the Government of Alberta introduced; the Disclosure to Protect Against Domestic Violence (Clare’s Law), which came into effect April 1, 2021.

This Act gives people who feel at risk of domestic violence a way to get information about their partners, so they can make informed choices about their safety.

St. Albert RCMP Domestic Violence Unit, in conjunction with St. Albert Victim Services Unit, will educate clients about Claire’s Law and provide direction on the application process. Regardless of any circumstance that may arise in the process, the Clare’s Law program will focus on providing information and support to the persons at risk so they can protect themselves.

Applications can only be submitted online at https://www.alberta.ca/clareslaw (there is no cost to apply).

Call 310-1818 to access local supports on Family Violence. Help is available 24/7 in over 170 languages. Chat online at https://www.Alberta.ca/safetychat available daily from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
