Professional Conduct Hearings
Professional Conduct Hearings are held for a variety of professional misconduct allegations under the Police Act and the Police Service Regulation of Alberta. The different misconduct allegations addressed at hearings are defined and described in Section 5 of the Police Service Regulation. Generally speaking, there are four different types of proceedings in these matters: First Appearance, Appearance, Presentation of Evidence and Decision. Typically, a file will progress through these four different hearing types, but sometimes not all will be required. For example, evidence may be presented as an agreed statement of facts or a decision may be made at the end of the presentation of evidence instead of in a separate hearing.
Upcoming Professional Conduct Hearings:
LPS will endeavour to post notices of public hearings two weeks in advance of the hearing date. Currently, no hearings are scheduled in that time frame.

Generally speaking, Professional Conduct Hearings are open to the public and media. If you wish to attend, please note that food and drink is not allowed in the hearing room. Recording devices and cameras also are not permitted.
**Please note the locations listed on the calendar above are the pre-selected locations that will be monitored. Photo radar operators may also attend additional locations each day based on need - including requests from the public**
