The Police Service Regulation provides the Edmonton Police Commission with the authority to extend the time limit for the Chief of Police to charge a police officer with misconduct. The Commission may extend the time limit even if the time limit has passed.
Where the Chief of Police requests a retroactive extension of the time limit for a significant period of time (more than three months) the Commission will notify the complainant(s) and the affected officer(s) and provide them with an opportunity to make submissions to the Commission. The Executive Director, with the assistance of the Public Complaint Director and legal counsel (as required), shall coordinate the exchange of submissions between the Chief, complainant(s), and affected officer(s) and bring the matter before the Commission for decision. Generally, submissions will be in writing. Requests to make in person submissions shall be brought forward to the Commission for decision.
The Commission shall provide the complainant(s), affected officer(s) and Chief of Police with a written decision. A copy of the Commission’s decision shall be included in the next scheduled Commission meeting materials.
