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!

    Obviously the City Counsellors who have chosen to defund the police budget have based their decision on what they see and hear in movies, videos and police behaviour in other countries. I would suggest they go for a ‘ride along’ in Calgary with a street cop on a Saturday night to see what our police are up against and what really goes on. I’ve known street police officers who also have their teaching degree, their social work degree and even their PhD, but they choose to protect our society through meaningful intervention. And the common denominator is that they all care about their city and community in which they live, and they want to protect the good folks from the bad. Please do not reduce the police funding! ALL LIVES MATTER!

    We need the police to respond immediately. Cutting funding will prove that the police need the resources to protect us.
