Alberta’s police watchdog is seeing its busiest year since inception in 2008.

The number of investigations being undertaken by the Alberta Serious Incident Response team (ASIRT) is set to hit an all time high in 2015.
At a press conference in Edmonton in earlier this year, the executive director of ASIRT, Susan Hughson, said they’ve already investigated 25 incidents in 2015, a number on pace to surpass 41 investigations recorded in the previous year and any year on record. The five-year average is about 32.
