Ask Me About the Budget: Session 5 with Edmonton Police Service
Now is your chance to ask one or more of Edmonton’s senior managers about the City budget, and the programs and services the City provides.
Do you have questions about how the police commission manages the budget for community policing, crime prevention and victim support? Post your questions here, and on Wednesday, November 25, we’ll have senior officers from the Edmonton Police Service answering those questions live during one in a series of “Ask Me About the Budget” sessions. This is the fifth in a series of five sessions on the budget.
November 25, 2015, noon-1pm. Ask Me About the Budget: Session 5 with Edmonton Police Service
The Edmonton Police Service focuses its efforts on a four-part policing mandate: prevent crime, enforce the laws, address matters of public safety and maintain social order. The police service strives to achieve this within a city that continues to experience tremendous growth but still requires the same levels of service for all its citizens. EPS relies on statistical and criminal analysis and modelling to determine what resources are necessary to react to evolving criminal and societal trends.
You can check out the City’s proposed budgets in a number of different forms:
- the actual budget documents and the break down by departments – edmonton.ca/budget2016
- an interactive, user-friendly budget primer – yegcitybudget.ca
- an open data version of the budget – Open Budget
Submit your questions on this blog, now and in the days to come for the Edmonton Police Service. We’ll be publishing the questions and posting live responses during the lunch hour on November 25, 2015. Join us then for a live, interactive question and answer session.
