The Edmonton Police Commission is responsible for establishing policies for efficient and effective policing. The Edmonton Police Commission and the Chief of Police shall work collaboratively to identify and appoint individuals who shall be eligible to act as Chief of Police in circumstances where the Chief is temporarily unavailable or unable to fulfill the duties of Chief.
The Chief shall only select as acting chief any eligible individual as selected pursuant to this policy. A necessary condition for any and all eligible individuals is that they are a “police officer” as defined under the Police Act for the day immediately preceding any appointment and for the entire period in which they are appointed Acting Chief.
