The new mayor of Lethbridge has been on the job for just over a month now. One of the campaign promises that Blaine Hyggen ran on during the last municipal election was to work towards putting more funding back into the Lethbridge Police Service to help fight crime. A million dollars was taken out of the police budget last year. Mayor Hyggen says he would like to see more boots on the ground to help fight crime in our city.
