Deputy Minister of Justice and Solicitor General Tim Grant, along with Cal Duplessis, a team leader with the Audits and Compliance branch, presented Chief Steve Murray and Police Commission Chairperson, Tammy Gagnon, with a compliance certificate in recognition of the high standard of policing services provided to Albertans.

Every four years, the Ministry of Justice and Solicitor General audits every municipal police service in Alberta to ensure they are complying with Alberta’s high policing standards. Over 450 individual standards in 170 areas of responsibility are reviewed and assessed.

During the audit in early 2013, the minister of justice and solicitor general determined the Lacombe Police Service “Fully complied with the Alberta Policing Standards.”

Grant said this was an accomplishment for any police organization but particularly noteworthy for a smaller police service.

“We are very proud of the accomplishments of LPS and we feel the residents of Lacombe can be equally as proud that as a commission, we have set the standards high and the members and staff of LPS have worked hard to meet our expectations,” said Gagnon.

Murray agreed.

“This is a reflection of the dedication and hard work of our members and support staff, current and former, who have embraced our vision of community partnership and truly strived to be the best police service for our community,” said Murray.
