Edmonton Police Commissioners are to represent the public in carrying out their duties as described in the Police Act, the Police Service Regulation, City of Edmonton Bylaw #14040 and this policy manual.
Commissioners should expect to spend a significant number of hours each month in performance of their duties as required by Commission business. They should also expect to be appointed to sub-committees of the Commission. These may include standing committees such as the Professional Standards Committee, Finance & Audit Committee, or Governance Committee; and, ad hoc committees that are formed to address specific matters for the Commission.
Individual Commissioners cannot direct the Executive Director or other Commission staff. All directions or recommendations adopted by the Commission will be put forward as a motion. Where a matter is identified as requiring approval of the Commission, such approval shall be by motion and reflected in the minutes.
