The Medicine Hat Police Commission typically holds open public meetings on the third Wednesday of each month starting at 6:00 PM. The meetings will also be live-streamed. Please see the new Live-Stream option at the top of the page for the link.

To enhance transparency and accountability to the citizens of Medicine Hat, the Police Commission welcomes members of the public to attend the Open meetings to hear updates on policing activities and matters concerning community safety. There is a standing “public consultation” opportunity on the agenda of the open meeting for members of the community to provide their input to the Commission about policing in the community or to ask a question.

During the Public Consultation portion of the meeting agenda, citizens may pose questions or provide brief comments to the Commission directly.  Any questions forwarded to the Commission by the Friday preceding the meeting date will be addressed by the Commission during the Public Consultation session.  Questions from citizens in attendance that were not forwarded in advance will be allowed, however, responses may be deferred to a later date.

Questions from the public can be forwarded to the Chair of the Police Commission, Ms. Sarah Scahill, at (email) or 403-502-8908 (phone). The written option is preferred as it provides the Police Commission ample time to research the question or concern to provide an informed response.

Please note that complaints about officer conduct and MHPS policies are not topics for this forum as there is a process under the Alberta Police Act for such matters.

Ongoing investigations and personnel matters are not to be discussed in Open Meetings as per the provisions set out in the Alberta Police Act.
