Residents invited to attend GPPS Chief of Police swearing-in ceremony

The City of Grande Prairie and the Grande Prairie Police Commission have announced the official swearing-in date for GPPS Chief Dwayne Lakusta.

On April 19th in the Teresa Sargent Hall at Montrose Cultural Centre at 2:00 p.m. Chief Dwayne Lakusta will take an Oath of Allegiance and Office, signifying his dedication to the city and it’s new police force in front of provincial dignitaries and members of the public.

Lakusta assumed the role of Chief of Police on August 28th last year, and made history as the GPPS’ first chief and the first inaugural municipal police chief in the province in nearly 70 years, as the installation of the GPPS marks the first Alberta municipal police service to be established since 1956.

The occasion will be livestreamed on the City of Grande Prairie’s Facebook page for residents unable to attend in person and the city says Chief Lakusta will be available to meet with and speak to attendees following the ceremony.
