Alberta hiring staff for feasibility study of replacing RCMP with new force


The Alberta government is looking to hire a contractor to study the benefits and costs of a proposed provincial police force that could replace the RCMP. The provincial government’s Fair Deal Panel recommended in June the creation of a provincial police force, saying the RCMP has become too bureaucratically inflexible and smaller communities aren’t getting enough front-line officers. “Rural Albertans told the Fair Deal Panel about their frustrations with rural policing and we have an obligation to follow up on the panel’s findings and study whether there’s a better way to protect our communities.”
