In April 2019, five people were stabbed in Edmonton in what appeared to be random acts of violence by a single perpetrator. Severe, life-threatening injuries were inflicted, and the police arrested a suspect. Custody decisions had to be made quickly and the SFR process was activated in the local hospital. Evidence was provided within hours and the suspect was remanded and charged with attempted murder as a result. Had the process not existed, a potentially dangerous criminal would have been released which may have led to further incidences.
