City begins search for municipal police force commission members

The City of Grande Prairie has officially opened the recruitment phase for members of recently created municipal police force commission. Officials say they’re looking for members of the public who are “dedicated to ensuring Grande Prairie is a safe and vibrant city today and into the future”.

While anyone is free to apply, the municipality says they’re looking for members of the public with experience in finance, governance, human resources; as well as lived experiences and understanding of diverse and marginalized communities.

“Recruitment of Police Commission members is a vital next step in setting the foundation for the Grande Prairie Police Service,” says Grande Prairie City Manager Bob Nicolay “We know many community members care deeply about fostering a safe Grande Prairie, and the city is eager to see applications from diverse and qualified backgrounds.”

The Grande Prairie Police Commission will be comprised of between seven and 12 members, who will be committing to at least a three-year term, with the potential of serving 10 consecutive years if reappointed. The city says the commission will be comprised of up to two members of municipal staff or council, two will be appointed by the Province of Alberta, with the remaining being members of the public appointed by council.
