Police Commission Chair discusses Justice Minister’s disappointment in LPS Action Plan

Lethbridge Police Commission Chair, Rob vanSpronsenn says the Justice Minister’s disappointment in LPS Action Plan came as a surprise to him and Lethbridge Police Service Chief Shahin Mehdezadeh.

Early in April, Madu demanded that the Lethbridge Police Service and Lethbridge Police Commission address the many issues stirring public distrust by submitting to him an action plan by the end of April – or he would look at the possibility of dissolving the police service altogether.  The LPS complied and turned in their report ahead of the deadline.  But a month later, Minister Madu expressed his disappointment in that Action Plan. 

VanSpronsen shares with BCN’s Jeannette Rocher what the Minister is looking for. A revised plan is due back to Minister Kayee Madu on June 25th.
