Peace Officer Services
Flagstaff County is authorized by the Solicitor General of Alberta to employ two Community Peace Officers who have the authority to enforce legislation and regulations relating to:
- The Traffic Safety Act
- The Provincial Offences Procedure Act
- The Highways Development and Protection Act
- The Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Act
- The Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act
- And other provincial acts and legislation.
- The Peace Officers work in partnership with various Federal and Provincial agencies to patrol and enforce legislation and regulations.
Community Peace Officers enforce weights and measures to ensure that road users operating in Flagstaff County are working within legal allowances, therefore protecting the infrastructure from damage and increasing safety on our roadways.
Flagstaff County Peace Officers are contracted to provide enforcement services for the urban municipalities within the County.
RCMP's Flagstaff County Crime Map
The Alberta RCMP supports community engagement by providing the public with the tools, resources and information they need to uphold public safety – for themselves and for their communities.
About the Map
The new online map enables the Alberta RCMP to share current criminal incidents with members of the communities they serve across Alberta.
The RCMP hopes that the map will help encourage citizens to report suspicious activity to the police which will strengthen their intelligence gathering capability and help them make arrests.

Peace Officer Tips – August 2020
Alberta is transitioning to an administrative adjudication model, that will be known as the SafeRoads Alberta Branch, to address most first-time impaired drivers as of December 1, 2020. SafeRoads will be a branch within Alberta Transportation.
- Drivers who wish to appeal their impaired driving penalty can do so by applying for a review to SafeRoads Alberta. An Adjudicator rather than a judge in a traditional courtroom will hear a review. Instead of having to attend in-person to schedule and attend court hearings, Albertans will be able to manage all matters in writing or by phone/
- This new model will be simple, fast, efficient and fair for Albertans.
- More information will be made available in the coming months.
In the fall of 2021, Alberta will be expanding SafeRoads Alberta to include challenges to other contraventions of the Traffic Safety Act that do not result in bodily harm or death. For example, this would include parking tickets.
