Important dates

Final reports by municipalities are due April 30 each year.

Added police officers

From 2008 to 2011, the Alberta government added 300 police officers to municipalities across the province to promote safe and secure communities and help reduce crime. Municipalities that received police officers are provided yearly funding to help cover policing costs.


Each municipality that received one of the 300 police officers is given funding of up to $100,000 per position, per year. This funding is ongoing but is dependent on yearly funding allocations.


Municipalities with a population over 5,000 that provide their own municipal police services were eligible for this grant. The grant is issued each year and no application is required; there are no new recipients being considered.


The reporting period runs from April 1 to March 31.
