Defend The Police!

Defend The Police!

Calgary's brave police officers protect our homes, businesses, and communities from harm and keep us safe. Now, some on City Council are calling for the police to be defunded. They want to reduce the number of police on our streets and spend the money instead on psychologists and social workers. As we've seen in many US cities, taking police out of communities results in more violent crime, more property damage, and significantly less public safety.

We need to stand up for Calgary's police and push back against those who want to paint our police as villains. Let's #DefendThePolice!

I, the undersigned, support Calgary police officers who put their lives on the line to keep us safe. I call on Calgary City Council to defend the police!

    Need to see the public safe and their property not stollen.Kids do not need to be

    Sexually abused by pediphiles.Murders do not need to take place.Hit and runs need not take place.I have nearly been hit 7-8 times by unattentive drivers in cross walks.Speeding drivers or drivers under the influence of Drugs or Alchohol.Where are the police when needed.In March had stuff stollen from my daughters balcony.Had a middle aged tall Indian man from India standing and looking in my daughters living room window at 11:30 PM more than once the police were called but never showed up to deal with the situation after they were called last February!My daughter got on the phone at least 2-3 times with the police.Nothing was done at all.Then some of my stuff was stollen.It is a Joke seeing the sentence of a man who suffocates a 76 year old women and gets 10 years for it or a pedophile getting 4 1/2 years for sexually a 11-13 year old girl.Kids getting away with bullying other kids.Rape by teen Male in a foster home why are they not being dealt with and foster mother says her son would not sexually abuse a foster sister.Yet he did.The police need to deal with all of these things as well as bad drivers.I have had two kids hit by cars in Calgary and one nearly hit by a car two blocks from Albert’s park apartment.The Truck came speeding around the Corner from Barlow Tr. and did not stop.The corner just before the first bus stop passed Inglewood in the turning lane many times drivers do not let us pedestrains cross the street when we have the cross walk signal saying walk.Cross walk lights need to be put up at either the back of Albert’s Park Appartments on 16 ave and 26th street.Why do courts look at leaving kids with a physically abusive father who can loose his cool and throw things around ie remotes,game controllers, cell phones,smash a windshield on his car get to keep his kids.He was frusterated with his oldest son Jordan not listening to him and he shoved him into the wall.More on the police’s part needs to be done.There are not enough Police,Firemen and Ambulance Drivers,Parimedics or Medical Staff in Nursing Homes and Hospitals as well as Doctors for the size of Calgary.Why should the Disabled have to live on so little when some cannot work ie My husband Stephen and my girlfriend Kathy.Even I cannot work as they both need some level of help and more than what home care gives.They are not there more than maybe 1 hour a day for my friend.It is hard for her to cook,walk,do laundry,sometimes she forgets to take her meds.I have spine issues and am in pain many days.I am there for both as I have took at one point my homecare courses.My son Mark when he was in grade one the teacher had no time to work with him and he had learning challanges.Should these children loose out because of our Gouvernment wants to cut back on spending.My son has built two computers from scratch.In grade 4 he was at an upper k-lower grade one level.This was with me working with him all the time.Mark has been working for over 4 years and paying taxes.The poor should be able to get a place to live and the disabled should be able to get housing that is suitable for there needs.There is not a lot of affordable housing for the poor and disabled.So much needs to change and more of the rich people need to look and see how they can help the Seniors,Disabled and the poor.

    I have only met a few police officers that I didn’t like but probably in the neighborhood of two hundred that I did like. Give them more money not less. Murray

    i think the police are doing an incredible job and I dont believe everyone should pay for what one person has done—we are fortunate to have the police force to protect us
