Alberta town awaiting promised police college

March 25, 2009

The town of Fort MacLeod Alberta is still waiting for the province to deliver on its promise of establishing a $100-million police training centre in the municipality. The police college, expected to train as many as 400 police officers and 1,000 peace officers a year, was first announced in 2005 in response to recommendations made by MLAs in 2002. Alberta's Solicitor General says that due to the economic downturn, the province is still trying to figure out a funding formula that will work. Edmonton Journal
