It’s a career like no other. From responding to calls for service as a frontline officer, investigating major crimes and working undercover to searching for missing persons, processing evidence and responding to critical incidents, every day is different and most importantly, has a positive impact on the community.
Putting pen to paper has been a part of policing since Sir Robert Peel’s first officers began walking the beat in 1829. Now – almost 200 years later – a new era in policing has begun.
Since November 2015 the Lethbridge Police Service has been working with Alberta-based Faction Four, the creators of the Smart Squad app. Smart Squad brings smartphone mobility to frontline officers to increase efficiency, reduce costs and enhance officer safety.
Lethbridge Police have charged a 35-year-old woman with aggravated assault and a warrant has been issued for her arrest.
Lethbridge Police are advising the public that officers will be conducting two critical incident training exercises today.
From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. police officers will be staged at the old Civic Centre Curling Rink and from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the vacant Sears building to participate in critical incident training scenarios. Neighbours in the vicinity have already been advised.
Lethbridge Police are asking anyone who witnessed a stabbing last weekend to come forward.
