Chestermere Peace Officers launch partnership with Calgary 9-1-1 to improve officer safety
The City of Chestermere is pleased to announce a new partnership with the City of Calgary that will ensure Community Peace Officers are fully supported throughout the entirety of their shift.
Peace Officers throughout the province often work outside of normal business hours and occasionally work alone. Prior to this agreement, there was little in the way of officer monitoring or backup support if a situation escalated.
With the new partnership, officers will check in with Calgary 9-1-1’s 24/7 emergency dispatch when they begin and end their shift. Dispatchers will monitor officers during the shift, check in during investigations and have the ability to dispatch additional resources should the need arise.
