The City of Grande Prairie's Mobile Outreach is a diversion program focused on mitigating the impacts of street-level social disorder, addiction, and public intoxication. The program assists businesses and residents in handling their concerns related to the street-engaged population. Concerns may include trespassing, loitering, disturbances, public intoxication, needle debris, and encampments.
