Quarterly Service Plan Accountability Reports

These quarterly reports show our progress towards the goals set for us by City Council and the Calgary Police Commission: 

Budget Information Report

We appreciate that the Calgary Police Service budget is largely funded through the taxes paid by hard-working Calgarians. The responsibility to ensure we are operating as efficiently and effectively as possible is not one that we take lightly. This report from the Calgary Police Commission and the Calgary Police Service is part of our commitment to be as transparent as possible with the funds we are provided through the City of Calgary and other government grants and fine revenue.  


Executive Leadership Expense Reports

As part of our commitment to be an open, transparent and accountable organization, we release these reports twice per year in the spring and fall. They include line item details, including business travel, meals and hosting, and employee recognition for the Chief of Police and the four Deputy Chiefs.

Traffic Safety Plan

We are committed to the prevention of crime and enforcement of laws within the community, which includes traffic safety. Serious injury or death of pedestrians or motorists can be reduced through education, targeted enforcement at high-collision locations, and collaboration with the City of Calgary on planning roadways.

The CPS Interim Traffic Safety Plan (2022-2023) captures our organizational goals and overall plan related to traffic safety, with the idea to align with the City of Calgary for a jointly published plan for our 2024-2026 Traffic Safety/Safer Mobility Plan.
