“These awards allow us to bring amazing stories of community connection with police out of the shadows. Amazing work is being done quietly in every corner of our city to build safe neighbourhoods and resilient relationships. We want to hear those stories so we can celebrate their work, show our gratitude, and give these citizens some well-deserved recognition.” – Brian Thiessen, Calgary Police Commission Chair

The Community Policing Awards ceremony will take place in June as part of the Calgary Police Commission’s annual community dinner. The event is a catalyst for meaningful discussions where more than 400 community members from across the city are given a voice in addressing public safety topics at a grass roots level.
