Commission holds May regular meeting
The public and media are invited to participate in the May regular meeting of the Calgary Police Commission on Wednesday, May 31, 2023, 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:
- A presentation on the Calgary Police Service’s unsolved homicides
- City of Calgary staff presenting the same information Council received on transit safety and the impact of creating a closed system
- An update on crime trends in our city
- An update on the Service’s anti-racism work

The Calgary Police Commission is a body of 13 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.
