Welcome to the Alberta Association of Police Governance’s Official Website

The AAPG is an association of police commissions and policing committees from across the province. Police commissions provide governance and oversight to municipal police services, while policing committees oversee local RCMP detachments. The people who are appointed to police commissions and policing committees are citizens representing the interests of their community, and a few of them are members of city and/or town council. Together, they provide civilian governance and oversight of the police. Learn More About AAPG
