Commission holds January regular meeting
The public and media are invited to participate in the January regular meeting of the Calgary Police Commission on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2024, from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Regular meetings include a public portion where commissioners discuss a variety of topics with the Calgary Police Service leadership and hear from the public. There is also a private portion where commissioners and the Service discuss police conduct complaint investigations, personnel issues, and any other sensitive matters that cannot be discussed in public.
The agenda for this month’s public meeting includes:
- The 2024 Annual Policing Plan and the priorities for the coming year
- Changes to the Service’s anti-radicalization program (ReDirect)
- Local crime trend updates
- Updates on the Service’s ongoing anti-racism work
Written reports and the presentations for the meeting are now available on the Calgary Police Commission website.

The Calgary Police Commission is a body of 10 community members and two city councillors appointed by City Council and the Government of Alberta to provide independent governance and oversight of Calgary’s police.
To protect the political neutrality of law enforcement, Calgary’s police chief reports to us instead of elected leaders. We provide direction to the Calgary Police Service through the police chief, police policies, monitoring of the police conduct complaint process, and approval of how the police budget is spent.
