November 29, 2017 - CHAIR RESPONDS TO CPS BUDGET INCREASE

"The Commission is thankful to Calgary city council for voting to increase the Calgary Police Service budget. We realize that it was a difficult decision in this economic climate.

"However, we know that this increase is necessary to ensure that the service has sufficient resources to keep our city safe and to prevent crime. This increase will help CPS respond to the priorities we've heard from citizens and the challenges facing public safety in Calgary.

"We look forward to continuing our work with CPS and city council as we move quickly into discussions about how CPS can support citizens in the coming years."

- Brian Thiessen, Chair

May 17, 2017 Online Citizen Consultation Forums Now Underway

As part of the Commission's goal and commitment to increase community engagement and to better understand the community's perspective on policing topics, we are launching online community consultation forums. These forums will allow the Commission to get more in-depth insights from Calgarians, which will help enhance our understanding of the citizen satisfaction data research conducted annually.

Recruitment for the online community consultation forums will take place between May 17, 2017- June 19, 2017. Illumina Research Partners, a market research company, has partnered with the Commission to conduct this research.

These forums have been registered with the Market Research and Intelligence Association to allow the public to verify the legitimacy of the research. The registration system's toll-free telephone number is 1-800-554-9996 and the MRIA project registration number is 20170407-509U. If follow-up is required with Illumina Research Partners, please contact Carrie Fisher at 403 802-4300.

CALGARY POLICE COMMISSION RELEASES 2016 CPS EMPLOYEE SURVEY RESULTS

A survey of the Calgary Police Service reveals how employees feel about their workplace. The results show declines in satisfaction and perceptions about respectful culture, workload, and inclusion.

Each year, the Calgary Police Commission engages with police officers and civilian employees through an extensive online survey to understand their perceptions and concerns about their workplace. Hearing directly from employees supports the Commission's ability to oversee improvements to the police service.

Through this survey, the Commission monitors employee satisfaction and engagement levels, and offers the opportunity for employees to anonymously articulate concerns in their own words.

Key findings from the research, along with the full report, can be found in the Media section.
