Update: Notifying citizens of stolen police uniforms

We have recovered some items related to an investigation of stolen police uniforms.

On Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021, we were called to a Calgary residence for reports that operational Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) uniforms and a non-operational Edmonton Police Service (EPS) uniform had been stolen.

A few weeks later, our investigators received an anonymous Crime Stoppers tip with information regarding some of the stolen uniform items which were then returned to a Calgary Police district office.

In the interest of public safety, please note the below items that are still outstanding.

RCMP operational items that remain outstanding include:

  • Soft body armour
  • RCMP duty belt containing no tools or ammunition
  • Dump pouch for duty belt
  • Plain clothes firearm holster
  • RCMP toque
  • International RCMP uniform shirts, long and short sleeved
  • A small SentrySafe
  • Soft police duty bag
  • Hard police duty bag

EPS non-operational items that remain outstanding include:

  • EPS duty hat
  • EPS dress uniform

Citizens are reminded that if they have a concern about an individual identifying themselves as a police officer, they can request to see the individual’s police badge and police photo identification card. Citizens can also call the police non-emergency number to verify an officer’s identity.

Anyone with information about this incident, or who may come across these items, is asked to contact CPS by calling the non-emergency number at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:

TALK: 1-800-222-8477
