Calgary's cops to volunteer at Vancouver Olympics

Seventy-five of our City's finest will be reporting for volunteer duty in Vancouver for the 2010 Olympic Games.

According to this Calgary Sun article, the officers will use their own vacation time and policing will not be affected in Calgary nor will it be on taxpayer's dime.

Additionally, RCMP say hundreds of their Alberta officers -- about 600 or 25% of the province's force -- will work security at the Vancouver Olympics in February.

It's great to see those in uniform giving their time for a good cause.
