LPS action plan ready for Justice Minister ahead of deadline

The Lethbridge Police Service says they’ve completed their action plan for Alberta’s Justice Minister and Solicitor General ahead of the April 16 deadline.
On March 22, Minister Kaycee Madu sent letters to LPS Chief Shahin Mehdizadeh, Lethbrige Police Commission Chair Rob vanSpronsen and Lethbridge Mayor Chris Spearman informing them that he was giving them a deadline of mid-April to present him with an action plan which would address various issues of concern at LPS, or he would consider dissolving the police service altogether.
According to LPA Chair Rob vanSpronsen, that plan was completed late last week and was voted on and passed at the April 8 police commission meeting.
Chair vanSpronsen told Bridge City News the document will be sent to Madu via email on Tuesday or Wednesday of this week and that he expects there to be an update from the Justice Minister about the plan later this week.
