Alberta government threatens to dissolve Lethbridge police force unless chief shows reform plan in weeks


Alberta’s justice minister has given the police chief in Lethbridge a three-week deadline to produce a plan to shape up the force or see it be dissolved under an “extraordinary” step by the government, according to letters exclusively obtained by CBC News. Justice Minister Kaycee Madu’s letters to Chief Shahin Mehdizadeh, Lethbridge’s mayor and the city’s police commission chair follow recent complaints about the service including that six employees allegedly used police databases to do unauthorized searches of a cabinet minister’s personal information on police databases.
