COVID-19 Updates: State of public health emergency declared.
We are further studying the potential transition to a made-in Alberta provincial police service by holding stakeholder engagement in fall of 2021 and a public survey in early 2022.
Replacing the RCMP with an Alberta provincial police service was a recommendation of the Fair Deal Panel to address Albertans’ concerns heard during public consultations in 2019 and 2020.
PwC Canada was hired in October 2020 to conduct a feasibility study and develop a proposed policing model. Their report found the concept was realistic, cost-effective and worth further study. The policing model proposes new approaches to service delivery and governance that could better address root causes of crime, increase accountability, and put more frontline personnel in communities across Alberta at equal or lower cost.
After a thorough analysis of the report, we have decided the concept warrants further study.
