Advocating for a new, more equitable police funding model is one of AUMA’s priorities for 2018. However, there is more work to do in developing and testing options for this funding model. Also, as establishing a new funding model will require opening the Alberta Police Act, AUMA would like to determine what other legislative changes may be required.
AUMA is establishing a working group of individuals who have prior experience relating to matters of policing and the Alberta Police Act to join this working group. Working group members will be selected based on experience, with some consideration given to the geographic region and size of municipality represented to ensure a diverse range of perspectives.
If you are interested in participating, please complete the Working Group Interest Form and submit it by May 31, 2018, to Kelly Santarossa, Senior Policy Analyst, at email@example.com.
If you have any questions about the working group or require additional information, feel free to contact Kelly at 780-409-4315.
