More talk about the future of provincial policing in Alberta with the plan to replace the RCMP is being heard lately. 

To provide the public with more information, the provincial government launched a new website entitled, Exploring an Alberta Provincial Police Service. 

Tyler Shandro, Minister of Justice and Solicitor General says, “Albertans have told us they want more details about the potential benefits of a provincial police service. As all levels of governments across the country review their policing models, Albertans need to have all the information available to ensure they lead this national discussion and make sure the future of policing in the province meets their needs.”

While a number of municipalities and First Nations have their own police services, others are exploring the possibility. 

On the other side of the table, more than 70 rural Alberta municipalities sent a letter, in June, to Premier Kenney requesting a stop to plans for the creation of a provincial police force. 

NDP Leader Rachel Notley posted on her Facebook page, "Instead of launching websites written by spin doctors, the UCP should listen to the rural municipalities trying to protect Albertans from having to pay to re-paint police cars."
