The Government of Alberta is giving serious consideration to replacing the RCMP with an independent Alberta Provincial Police Service, and a potential transition beginning in the year 2025.
A report by PriceWaterHouseCoopers outlines that the transition would cost 366 million dollars.
Last year the provincial government began shifting the cost of policing to municipalities including Lethbridge County. But the county’s position is that Alberta municipalities have not been adequately consulted on this matter.
Lethbridge County Reeve Tory Campbell joined BCN to discuss.
