I can almost see the same thing happening to Alberta CPO's that happened to Sask Highway Patrol when they tried to get side arms. They asked for sidearms because of the danger of stopping private vehicles, the Government turned around then told them to stop pulling over private vehicles :crazy:

Although it is of my own personal opinion that any LEO conducting any type of traffic stop should have a side arm, I don't see this happening in my lifetime.

The Sol Gen's Office made it very clear that there were six things that they would not be looking at during this review and sidearms was one of them. So nothing is going to happen.

What were those six things that they weren't going to be looking at?

They are not going to be changing any of the current rules requiring any of the following things. Sidearms, unmarked vehicles, impaired driving, criminal code, 1 & 2 digit highways and file review requirements.

I 110% agree!

As of Jan, 2018, New Jersey state correctional officers were all granted police officer status and authority, they also had their new job title as CORRECTIONAL POLICE OFFICER, which meant they could lay criminal charges to inmates right on site, and if there was an serious incident, CO can also conduct the crime scene investigation without waiting for police to be on scene for investigation, I am hoping this could be the future trends in Canada.

Why? There are few enough of them, if feces hit the air circulator they would be authorized to do what they need to do, and all they have to do is hold the scene and not say or do anything to screw up the file.

Funny how some of that has changed for APO's. No changes for CPO's though, just government peace officers...
