Project "KARE" is an investigational unit originally created with the highest priority to examine the deaths of several “High Risk Missing Persons” who were found in rural areas surrounding the City of Edmonton. KARE has since expanded its mandate to include cases of murdered or missing high risk persons from all parts of Alberta. One of the objectives of project “KARE” is to investigate all leads, capture and prosecute the person(s) responsible for these crimes.
Project KARE has evolved considerably since its inception in 2003. It is recognized in the police universe as the model for complex investigations of this nature. Project KARE has gone through a period of transition which included the development of the Alberta Missing Persons and Unidentified Human Remains (AMPUHR) Project as well as the Historical Homicide Unit (cold case squad.) The Proactive Team continues to actively register high risk persons so that valuable investigational material will be readily available should another homicide occur to a high risk person. To date over 1400 HRP have been registered in this program.
