Task force calls for Edmonton police funding freeze, more anti-racism training for officers

That the Edmonton Police Service (EPS) should have its funding frozen and that police officers need to receive much more rigorous anti-racism training are among the recommendations brought forward in a new 68-page report from a task force created with the intention of bringing forward new ideas to make people of all backgrounds in the city feel more safe.

“Edmonton’s community safety ecosystem desperately needs to be modernized,” reads a section of the report released Wednesday by Edmonton’s community safety and well-being task force.

“Our city is spending more money each year doing the same things, in the same old ways, using the same old thinking, without seeing enough change. This is frustrating people and harming public trust in key institutions.”
