Canmore Policing Committee

The Policing Committee was disbanded by Council on Oct. 1, 2019. Instead, an alternate model of oversight of the municipal police services agreement (MPSA) and public engagement on policing priorities is expected to be a more efficient process (and use of resources) while maintaining the same or better results.

The Canmore Policing Committee is volunteer committee that assists the RCMP with the development of policing priorities and makes recommendations to Council as part of the budget process regarding the number of municipal RCMP officers and the enhanced policing budget.

The Canmore Policing Committee meets four times a year. Members of the public are welcome to attend. Please phone 403.678.1576 if you are interested in attending a meeting. Meeting dates, times, and location will be advertised on this calendar with a minimum 24 hours notice.

The committee consists of a minimum of four and a maximum of six public members and one member of council. Public members are appointed by Council in late October every year to 2-year terms. Current members are:

Public Members
Mark Blackwood
Andre Giannandrea 
Kara Masters 
Neal Sevcik 
Nevil Stow 
Nick Servos (resigned June 2019)

Council Representatives
Councillor Jeff Hilstad

Public Policing Complaints

The Public Complaints Director is a volunteer whose primary responsibility is to respond to questions and inquiries relating to the Canmore RCMP Detachment's service role. This may involve addressing a concern or acknowledging a compliment pertaining to a particular issue or quality of delivery of policing services. You should understand that the Public Complaints Director does not investigate, but will assist you with the process of filing a complaint.

What can I complain about?

 - Quality of service provided by the RCMP in Canmore.

 - A complaint against a member of the RCMP Canmore Detachment.

How do I make a complaint or compliment?

Contact Greg Burt, Manager of Enforcement Services at 403-678-1576 and your information will be forwarded to the Public Complaints Director.
