The province's director of law enforcement assigns ASIRT its files. ASIRT may be directed to:
- conduct an investigation
- take over an ongoing investigation
- review the investigation of a police agency
- oversee and provide direction on an investigation being conducted by a police agency
ASIRT's executive director decides – after consulting the Alberta Crown Prosecution Service – whether a police officer should be criminally charged.
