Message from the Conference Chair 

So much has happened since our last conference in 2019 and we are so excited to be able to gather once again in beautiful Lake Louise.  Now that COVID-19 measures are being relaxed and there is the ability to host a conference, we are all looking forward to seeing you all once again.  Conference is an exciting time to get together, collaborate, share challenges, and celebrate successes of Community Peace Officers throughout Alberta.

This year we will be hosting a variety of training sessions, receiving important updates from the Peace Officer Program, celebrating the success of our members and the very important work they do at our Regimental Banquet. There will also be an opportunity for Senior Managers and Chief Administrative Officers (CAO’s) to attend a private meeting with the Manager of the Peace Officer Program.

We look forward to seeing you all at the conference this February.  Should you have any questions please contact myself at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
