Community Peace Officers: The main objective of Peace Officers is to enforce Provincial Statutes of Alberta, as per their appointment, as well as Municipal Bylaws to ensure the safety of local citizens and property throughout the Municipality. 

The Town of Penhold’s Community Peace Officers (CPOs) are committed to serving and protecting the Town of Penhold and its residents. The Peace Officers are permitted to enforce by witness complaint, observation of the infraction or direction from another agency. 

Community Peace Officers are appointed by Alberta’s Solicitor General and Ministry of Public Security under the Alberta Peace Officers Act to enforce Provincial Legislation and Municipal Legislation within the Town of Penhold. 

Town of Penhold Community Peace Officers strive to establish relationships with town residents and businesses, provide public education and resources and enforce regulations as required. 

Peace Officer duties and responsibilities include, but are not limited to, enforcing, educating and ensuring compliance of Provincial Statutes (Traffic Safety act, Gaming and Liquor Act, Trespassing Act, etc…) and local legislation (Bylaws – Traffic, Land Use, Community Standards, Utility, such as excessive noise, parking infractions, unsightly premises etc).

Peace Officers work closely with a number of other agencies, RCMP/Police services / EMS / Fire and other Peace Officers in the province for joint operations/events and training. The enforcement carried out by the Peace Officers is recognized as supplemental to, and not a replacement for, the police service.
