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!

    Thank you for keeping our city and families safe. You are doing a great job!! I’ve witnessed the professionalism of the police on numerous incidents: saving a family member from a violent home invasion, finding and arresting a man who robbed me at knife point, helping a severely depressed friend find a safe place to talk and even helping my son when his car went off the road in -40 weather. Instead of defunding we should be hiring more police because a growing population can bring increased homelessness, drug addictions and crime. In addition, mental health issues are on the rise and mental health calls can become dangerous if the person has a weapon or is under the influence. You help the community stay safe in so many ways and are so appreciated! Our Police are the reason why Canada is a safe place to live and we don’t live with the mayhem and corruption that other countries experience .Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

    Don’t defund the police, instead hire psychologists and social workers to help them.

    we depend on the Safety and Security of the police in every facet and every area and they certainly don’t deserve this nor do Bureau cratic politicians need to decide what is best and the other question is if you define the police who can respond to those who need it this is absolutely ridiculous
