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.
