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!

    100% support our police and encourage the police to investigate the city politicians calling for the defunding of our much needed police.

    It is time for Calgarians to stand up to this left wing coup.

    You should be allocating a HIGHER percentage of the budget to be used for EXTRA training for our police officers in dealing with dangerous situations not DEFUNDING. Or put it to a REFERENDUM since most of City Council is out of touch with reality. Oh, also, more crowd control instead of tieing the hands of our police officers in dealing with these protesters that cause destruction to businesses and public statues, etc.

    Any member of city council that voted for defunding the police – don’t come crying when your residents begin to complain about rising crime in the wards that you are responsible for.

    Are you people in City Hall Insane? What the hell is the matter with you? Defund the police and let gangs take over – you have been in office way too long and it’s time for you to go.

    How dare you. Our Calgary police service is a model for other cities to follow. Alberta proud. To “defund” is not just stupid, it’s an act of cowardice in the face of somebody else’s agenda. Support our services that put their lives on the line every day to keep us ALL safe. Tighten the belt, find efficiencies and eliminate waste? Of course! Defund? Not like this, not on my watch.
