RMA Resources for Provincial Police Transition
Alberta Justice and Solicitor General (JSG) announced their plans to engage with municipalities regarding the potential transition to an Alberta Provincial Police Service (APPS). This engagement session will explore the issues laid out in the APPS Transition Study, APPS Future State Report, and the APPS Current State Report.
To help members prepare for participation in these JSG engagement sessions, the RMA has prepared an engagement guide. This engagement guide will walk members through the key issues identified by the RMA related to the APPS transition study. The guide is structured to follow the format of the engagement sessions, which will be based around five themes. Each of these themes is summarized, including issues of importance for RMA members, priority advocacy items, and key questions members can ask during the sessions.
The Government of Alberta is conducting engagement sessions with municipalities until April 2022. To register for these sessions, please review the schedule. Please note that some sessions may be postponed due to the evolving pandemic situation.
