During a disaster, law enforcement officers play a key role in many operations including: search and rescue, evacuations, door-to-door checks, and maintaining overall public safety within the community. These are critical actions that support not only their own communities but neighboring towns as well. Within Alberta, these supports can come from the local police agency of jurisdiction, the RCMP or provincial Sheriffs. This session is designed to help educate on the different roles, authorities and jurisdictions of law enforcement officers within Alberta, how to access additional policing support, and how they come together to provide security to communities in times of crisis.
