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!

    I agree with more help for troubled people, but it should not come from the Police budget by any means.

    I’ve got a number of speeding tickets in the past years. BUT YES – even THOSE helped me to be a SAFER DRIVER. For myself, as well as for the others on the road.


    I definitely support our BRAVE POLICE!!!!!

    Our police force needs more funding not less, they serve us at all times and especially in these difficult times. How about cutting some middle management out of city hall to save some money. Just saying. Greg

    We need our police to keep the communities safe. Not a police state but to serve and protect lawful citizens!

    What a ridiculous and uneducated vote/decision made by the “higher ups” who are supposed to be in support of keeping the community and people safe! All those who voted yes have not considered the livelihood of this city.

    our politically correct City Council should spend their time in cleaning out City Hall and defunding their salaries and pensions.

    The police need the money to keep moving forward. You can’t punish all of them for a few bad apples.

    These men and women are who we go to in our darkest time. We cannot take any money away from our police. They already struggle with a the shit we ask them to do!
