Alberta's NDP response to Question 04

Question: What additional financial support will you provide to address the increased costs and responsibilities associated with policing in Calgary? 

Answer: Provincial funding should reflect the province’s level of responsibility for police services. The NDP would provide funding for 900 new neighbourhood police officers across the province over the next five years to bring all Alberta up to the national average.

With a new more equitable relationship of the provincial and municipal orders of government, discussions about the funding needs for policing in particular municipalities would be more likely to lead to results that reflected the needs of the municipality and were not imposed by the province.
