Commission holds October regular meeting
The public and media are invited to participate in the October regular meeting of the Calgary Police Commission on Wednesday, Oct. 25, 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 police canines
- A presentation on police horses
- A presentation on the 2023 Employee Survey results
The usual crime trend and anti-racism work reports are available in writing, but there will be no verbal updates on those this month.

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.
