Claiming the 911 emergency system failed her, a local fitness instructor has
filed a formal complaint with the Edmonton Police Service after two men
barricaded her and seven others inside a southeast community league building.
Cheryl Schneider was hosting a spin class in the basement of the North
Millbourne Community League at 6 a.m. Monday morning when two “drunk and
strung-out” men and their pug walked in uninvited.
The men were escorted back upstairs by the lone man in the class, said
Schneider, but as the doors locked behind them, the men became angry and
started trying to break down the door to get back inside.
She says it took four 911 calls and more than an hour for police to arrive
and, by then, the suspects fled. They have not been found.
“When you have two angry, drunk, young men trying to break into your building,
we should have a better response time than that,” said Schneider.
She watched the men tried repeatedly to get inside, even trying to smash in
the building’s lock box for a key and attempting to bash down the door with a
two-by-eight board of wood.
When that didn’t work, Schneider said the men then used to board to barricade
the door before leaving. While the class got the door open, it was a full
thirty minutes before police arrived at approximately 7:30 a.m., she said.
“We were frightened and just so disheartened that the police hadn’t come at
that point,” she said. “It was a tense situation because they were drunk and
unpredictable... I don’t know what would have happened if they got inside.”
Police officials are reviewing how the call was prioritized and dispatched.
All four of her 911 calls were reviewed by the superintendent in charge of the
EPS operational support division by Wednesday afternoon, said Sgt. Rayanne
Knox, in charge of quality assurance for the police call centre.
Knox said police empathize with Schneider but said “the call was evaluated and
dispatched properly based on the information we had at the time.”
Insp. Blair Edl, in charge of the police communications, said police responded
to the non-emergency call “as quickly as we possibly could have.”
“Had the call escalated to where the person had safety issues or there was a
crime in progress, the priority would have been raised and we would have
attempted to respond sooner,” he said.
Edl said several factors slowed the police response. Officers were in the
middle of a shift change and were dealing with an ongoing homicide
investigation and a suicidal man, he said.
The dispatcher “did it right” by sending an officer who started at 7 a.m.,
said Edl, adding the total response time from the first call was approximately
48 minutes. Edl said the review results are expected within 30 days.
In the meantime, Schneider says the league president has offered to hire a
The 45-year-old mother of three says she’s not nervous about the location, but
is more scared Edmonton’s 911 system is inadequate.
“I can’t live with a system that’s so flawed it allows a few incidents to ***
away the need of the public,” she said.
“I’ve always told my children that if they’re in a bad situation to call 911
because the good guys will come. What do I say to them now? Hopefully your
timing is good?”
Time for residents to arm themselves and get rid of criminals, as the guy with
the machete did with burglar.
Crooked EPS are useless and should be fired.
